Melbourne Plating Ring Service

Rhodium plated rings consist of a 9ct, 14ct or 18ct white gold ring that has then been dipped in rhodium to make the ring whiter and brighter and remove the natural greyish colour of white gold. This makes the rings a similar colour to the natural colour tone of Platinum. Rhodium plating on rings generally lasts around 8-12 months and slowly is removed from the piece with every knock, scratch or bump.

Maintaining the Rhodium on your white gold pieces is ongoing and costs can quickly add up. This is why we supply complimentary servicing inclusive or rhodium plating on all the pieces we sell guaranteeing you that these pieces will stay white and bright forever and no extra charge to you.

Our Melbourne Rhodium Plating Ring Service is something we do in our on-site Workshop.

How Much Does Rhodium Plating Cost?

The Rhodium plating cost depends on the item of jewellery, the design, style and size.

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 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.

An Example

Rhodium Plating

The picture illustrates the difference in colour between a platinum ring and an 18ct white gold rhodium plated ring. The ring on the left has both the natural colours of platinum (white in colour) and 18ct white gold, which is slightly grey in colour. The ring on the right is in 18ct white gold but has been rhodium plated. This makes it appear to be whiter like the platinum. Both have an emery finish which highlights the colour more than a polished band.
