Rhodium Plating, a service offered by Watch Technicians, is a technique commonly used on white gold rings to enhance their appearance in order to provide a bright, white finish. Over time, the rhodium will wear and your white gold jewelry will need to be re-plated.
Your technician will begin by thoroughly cleaning your ring to remove any oils, dirt, or residue to ensure proper adhesion of the rhodium plating. Then they will use specialized equipment to apply a thin layer of rhodium to the ring’s surface. The skillful jewelers at Watch Technicians careful application ensures an even and consistent coating to cover all visible areas.
After rhodium plating is applied and the ring has had time to dry, your jeweler will then polish it to a high shine to bring out the brilliance added by the rhodium plating. Upon final inspection to be sure the rhodium plating is smooth and evenly distributed, your technician will call you to schedule a pick-up.
*Special Note: With daily wear, it is recommended to have the rhodium plated once every six months to a year. If your ring is only worn on special occasions, every two to three years will be sufficient.
