The Benefits of Rhodium-Plated Silver over 925 Sterling Silver

In the world of silver jewellery, two terms often surface: '925 sterling silver' and 'rhodium-plated silver.'

While both are esteemed for their beauty and durability, there are distinct advantages to choosing rhodium-plated silver over its untreated counterpart.

  • Enhanced Durability:

925 sterling silver, while durable, can tarnish over time due to exposure to air and moisture.

Rhodium plating forms a protective barrier that shields the silver from these elements, prolonging its lifespan and reducing the need for frequent polishing.

  • Resistance to Tarnishing:

Tarnishing is a natural process that occurs when silver interacts with sulfur in the air.

Rhodium plating prevents this interaction, keeping your jewellery looking pristine and reducing maintenance efforts.

  • Luxurious Appearance:

Rhodium is a member of the platinum group of metals, known for its brilliant white shine.

When applied to silver, it enhances the metal's natural lustre, giving it a more luxurious and polished look.

  • Hypoallergenic Properties:

Some individuals may experience skin irritation when wearing sterling silver, which contains copper.

Rhodium plating provides a protective barrier, making the jewellery hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Low Maintenance:

Rhodium-plated silver requires minimal maintenance compared to sterling silver.

Its resistance to tarnishing means that it retains its shine for longer periods, reducing the need for frequent cleaning.
