Are rhodium rings good quality?
Similarly one may ask, is rhodium plated jewelry good?
There are many upsides to rhodium plated jewelry. First, it increases shine, luster and durability. Additionally, it will make your jewelry more resistant to scratches and if it's silver, less prone to tarnishing. So if you have a nickel allergy, rhodium plating is a good option for you.
Similarly, which is better rhodium plated or sterling silver? They are two different things. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper added. Rhodium plated silver is fine or sterling silver that is polished and dipped in rhodium. It has a bright finish, similar to white gold items, and it doesn't tarnish.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how much is a rhodium ring worth?
Typically the cost for rhodium plating can range from $60 – $120 for a fine engagement ring. The price may vary depending on the quality of the rhodium solution, the skill of the jeweller, turnaround time, and the finished effect.
Does rhodium plating damage ring?
If you coat a diamond ring with a layer of rhodium then the diamond will look brighter. Some people use rhodium plating to protect their yellow gold jewelry, but this is not always the best idea. Rhodium plating wears away over time, and a fading rhodium coat will leave yellow gold jewelry looking murky and discolored.
