How Long Does Rhodium Plating Last?

A lot of people ask how long the Rhodium plating last? This depends on a number of factors. How many times the jewellery piece is worn, the type of metal it is and how heavy handed you are all plays a part. With every knock, dint and scratch rhodium plating does wear off. Plating for jewellery pieces like rings that are worn frequently may fade quicker, generally we advise 8 to 12 months. Whereas on chains, bracelets and earrings will generally last a lot longer. This is because they avoid more bumps and knocks in everyday wear. Plating on white gold last longer when compared to rhodium plating yellow gold or rose gold pieces.

The ring on the left has both the natural colours of platinum, true white in colour, and 18ct white gold, which is slightly grey in colour.

Both have an emery finish which highlights the colour more than a polished band.
