RHODIUM PLATED SILVER OVAL CABLE TRACE CHAIN
Dainty & Minimal! Perfect for small or light pendants. Sterling silver with Rhodium plating for a bright finish and anti-tarnish properties. Available in 16/18/20" lengths.
Care should be taken with trace chains; they are delicate, not designed to hold a weighty pendant and can stretch and break if pulled. Where they are part of the design of a piece they have been stress tested to ensure suitability; other items should not be added to these fine necklaces, or do so at your own risk.
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.
