Why rhodium plated 925 sterling silver?
Rhodium plating is a plating process used in jewelry that consists of electroplating 925 silver jewelry (also known as sterling silver) with rhodium to maintain or restore the jewelry’s shine. This makes rhodium-plated silver a more expensive precious material than conventional 925 silver. 925 Sterling silver is a very soft metal and tarnishes very easily. Plating with either rhodium or gold, not only increases the strength of the silver but also keeps it from tarnishing as quickly.
