Q

I HAVE HAD MOST OF MY 14K JEWERLY DIPPED IN RHODIUM BUT IT SEEMS TO WEAR OFF QUICKLY-CAN I HAVE IT DIPPED IN PLATINUM?

A

Hi Kerri,

One of the main complaints about white gold is the recurring need for maintenance with rhodium to maintain its white appearance. Depending on your skin and how you wear the rings the rhodium can last anywhere from a few weeks up to a year or so. You cannot dip your rings into platinum. You two options are recast your rings in platinum or continue with the rhodium treatments.
