Rhodium-plating is a process through which a piece of jewellery or metal is coated with a layer or Rhodium. In jewellery this is most often done to change the colour of the piece, enhance the design or increase the value. Rhodium is an extremely rare silvery-white metal. It’s considered a precious metal, part of the platinum family. It’s also hypoallergenic and corrosion resistant. As it is harder than most other precious metals, it’s often used to also increase the scratch resistance of jewellery. Incredibly valuable and with a brilliant shine, rhodium-plated pieces are truly magnificent. Allow yourself to light up a room and treat yourself to these rhodium-plated Swarovski jewellery pieces.
