Why you might like 100% Rhodium Plated Chains
Rhodium is a silvery-white elemental metal that is one of the Platinum Group Metals (PGM) along with Platinum, Palladium, Ruthenium, Osmium and Iridium. One of the rarest of precious metals, Rhodium currently sells at US$1025 per ounce.
In jewelry, Rhodium is often applied over sterling silver to prevent tarnishing or applied over white gold to improve the shine.
Rhodium is corrosion-resistant, heat-resistant, malleable, durable and nonporous, making the metal hypoallergenic for most people.
Rhodium is not the same as Imitation Rhodium, which is an alloy of bright tin, nor is it unrefined platinum.
For the new Rhodium Plated Chains at OhioBeads.com, we use 100% Rhodium plated over brass chain, yielding a jewelry chain that is pretty, durable and affordable.
