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 that sparkling effect that is currently very fashionable.
Rhodium plating also makes diamonds look bigger and better because it is so bright that it is hard to tell where the stones end and the metal begins. Nothing sets off diamonds like rhodium plating!
