Rhodium
Rhodium is an expensive alloy commonly applied as a hard protective coating over white gold. This coating makes the white gold metal even whiter and prevents tarnish. 18 and even 14 karat white gold have a very light hint of yellow. In order to make a white gold match the white brilliance of platinum, most if not all white gold jewelry is coated with Rhodium. This rhodium coating will fade off for some period of time (normally 3 to 6 months). It is possible to replate your white gold jewelry to regain the luster of new rhodium. We at DiamondonNet offer a no cost lifetime polishing and replating of Rhodium of any white gold jewelry purchased from us. All you need to do is give us a call and send us the item (fully insured registered mail) normally after a year then we will replate your white gold jewelry with rhodium. Please include a $20 check for the return shipment.
