Maintaining your jewelry?? Rhodium plating is the platinum finish we apply to white gold to make it a brilliant white color. All gold comes out of the ground yellow, so it is commonly alloyed with nickel, copper and zinc. Checking your jewelry at least twice a year let’s us look for worn broken or bent prongs, and loose or damaged stones. Rhodium plating done right makes your jewelry look as good as when it was first presented to you. We recommend once a year (think of waxing your car) and is a good relatively inexpensive investment ($ 35.00 and up) to keep your jewelry looking great. Normal repairs like this take no more then 1 week and everything is done in house, your jewelry will never leave the store! See you soon?
