Sterling Silver Rhodium Plated Diamond & London Blue Topaz Ring
Q. What is "rhodium" and what does it have to do with white gold jewelry?
A. Rhodium is a very precious metal that can cost ten times as much as gold or more! Although Rhodium is generally not considered a feasible material to make jewelry from, because it is stressed & brittle, and very difficult to "work" properly for jewelry making, and its price is terribly volatile, Rhodium is fabulous as a plating for jewelry because it is glitteringly, dazzlingly, white and mirror-like. It's like chrome, but much whiter, and one of the most reflective of metals.
