Rhodium is the finish of choice for top end fine jewelry. It is highly reflective and has a gorgeous deep luster. Without the rhodium coating, sterling silver jewelry tarnishes rather quickly due to the copper content found in sterling silver. Since silver is a soft and malleable metal, rhodium plating works wonders by making it stronger and more scratch resistant.
Please note that rhodium plating will eventually wear away over time with use. Your local jeweler can easily replate your silver jewelry, restoring it to its original shine.
