RHODIUM PLATED SILVER DEMI HOOPS WITH DISC CHARM

RHODIUM PLATED SILVER DEMI HOOPS WITH DISC CHARM

I present a pair of Rhodium-plated Sterling Silver demi-hoops. They come with a tiny and delicate round disc charm attached, which dangle to catch and reflect the light. They are made of Sterling Silver and coated in Rhodium, both for the anti-tarnish properties and that bright White Gold look. 

The demi-hoops are 16mm in diameter; with the disc, the full length of the earring is 25mm.

Also available in Gold Vermeil, and with a little star charm in either finish.

A precious white metal from the Platinum family, Rhodium costs eight times more than pure gold (23 times more than 9ct Gold) and four times more than its relative Platinum! A very hard and scratch-resistant metal, it is sometimes used to plate silver, where it also prevents it from tarnishing. As it is whiter in appearance than White Gold and Platinum, it is often used as a coating and is sometimes referred to as Rhodium flashing. It is often electroplated on the shoulders or prongs of Yellow Gold rings, in order to create an illusion setting for Diamonds. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible.  It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
