Cleaning and Re-Rhodium Plating

Your Jewellery

All Jewellery at times needs a clean! you can do this at home or bring it in to see us for a bit of extra sparkling. 

Things that can really effect the look of your jewellery, can be simple things like soap, hand sanitiser, perfume, and body creams. they get stuck behind the stones and dull that sparkle! 
Jewellery can also tarnish, Silver jewellery can turn black and dull, or almost a gold colour. Gold jewellery can start to look brassy and dull. No jewellery is beyond a good polish! 

Should i clean my jewellery at home? 

You absolutly can! We sell various Dips, clothes, dazzel pens, and wipes and are more than happy to talk you through how to use them. 

Always ready the instructions on the tub, never leave jewellery in dips, its a litteral dip and rinse. leaving it in the Dip can take the polish off and its might appear corroded and white. But It can be rectified with a full polish from our goldsmith.

Cleaning by a jeweller

If you choose you would like a bit extra, we are happy to oblige!

Rhodium Plating

How do know if you ring needs re plating and what is Rhodium plating? 


All gold is naturally yellow, to create white gold white metal alloys such as silver and Rhodium are added in the melting pot to make it whiter. But its never truly white it has a yellowy tinge particulary in 9ct, 18ct can be very grey in colour. 

When you buy white gold jewelly it has a Rhodium plating on top of the gold to give an ultra white finish. Rhodium is a white metal that is to soft to be made into jewellery but suitable for plating. 

What happens to your jewellery

Any jewellery can be rhodium plated. It starts with being checked for any loose stones or claws. 

It's then fully polished, 
Cleaned, 
It enters a electo bath which removes any grease or finger prints, 
it then goes into the electroplating bath for rhodium. 
A quck check and its done!
