Do you have any yellow gold jewellery you don’t wear any more because you may have fallen out of love with yellow gold?

Good news! There are options available to you.

First off, you can always come to our jewellery shop on Huntriss Row, Scarborough and we’ll try to buy it from you, or…

You can have it rhodium plated and turn it in to white gold jewellery.

What is rhodium?

Rhodium is a very precious metal that can cost ten times as much as gold or more! Rhodium is generally not considered a feasible material to make jewellery from, because it is stressed and brittle, very difficult to “work” properly for jewellery making, and it’s price is terribly volatile.

But rhodium is fabulous as a plating for jewellery because it is glitteringly, dazzlingly, white and mirror-like. It’s like chrome, but much whiter, and the most reflective of all metals.

Rhodium plating makes diamonds look bigger and better because it’s so bright that it glints like the diamonds. From a couple of feet away and under most lighting conditions it’s hard to see where the stones end and the metal begins. Nothing sets off diamonds like rhodium plating does. So most white gold jewellery today is rhodium plated.

So that’s another option. Why not bring your yellow gold jewellery in to us and let us give you a price on rhodium plating (turning it in to white gold jewellery). It’s very possibly cheaper than you think, and you can once again wear that jewellery you once loved.
