In this blog, we will talk about how to care for sterling silver 925 jewelry with rhodium plating and the precautions to take.
What is Rhodium Plating?
Platinum's family includes the precious metal rhodium. It is extremely durable, has a bright white color that does not tarnish, and is extremely hard. Electroplating a thin layer of rhodium onto a base metal like sterling silver is called rhodium plating. The rhodium layer gives a defensive boundary against discoloring, scratches, and mileage. Additionally, it improves the jewelry's brightness and shine, making it appear brand-new and stunning.
