Rhodium plating is the process in which rhodium is applied to gold by an electroplating procedure. This process is what turns yellow gold into white gold. A microscopic layer of rhodium covers and plates over the original gold.
Here is an example of what our jeweler has done over the weekend for one of our customers. She asked him to rhodium plate her 18k yellow gold diamond bangle to turn it into 18k white gold.
We were able to rhodium plate her 18k yellow gold diamond bangle and make it into 18k white gold in less than an hour to give it a fresh new look! By turning it white gold, this brings out the diamonds and transforms it into a brand new bangle with a new look to it.
Rhodium plating is one of the specialty repairs we offer here at Tien Hung Jewelry. Stop by or give us a call if you have any questions or would like to transform your old jewelry as well!
