Sometimes referred to as “white gold plating”. Rhodium is a metal very similar to platinum. All white gold jewellery is finished with rhodium plating as the natural colour of white gold is actually a light grey colour. Rhodium is very white and very hard, making it the perfect finish for white gold jewellery. It gives jewellery a sparkling effect that is currently very fashionable.
Rhodium plating also makes diamonds look bigger and better; its brightness makes it hard to tell where the stones end and the metal begins. Nothing sets off diamonds like rhodium plating!
