Ring Plating & Refinishing


White gold is invariably electroplated with rhodium to give it a silver metal coloring, which will wear off over time and leave a yellowed color. The prevalent rhodium plating process involves merely cleaning and then re-dipping the white gold item in rhodium, most likely in a 3Amps plating machine, in a process akin to applying a new layer of paint over the old one.

Khoury Bros., on the other hand, uses a 32 Amps electroplating machine, and in order for rhodium plating to hold up and to last longest we first thoroughly remove the old rhodium by bathing the jewelry in a special solution and meticulously polish and buff the item to remove the old rhodium layers, and only afterwards does the jewelry item receive a new layer of rhodium resulting in a better finish and longer durability.
