PREMIUM RHODIUM & 24k GOLD PLATING
Rhodium is a very rare and precious metal used for jewelry, and comes from the same group of metals as platinum. Rhodium plated means jewelry made from a base metal of gold, silver, or other alloy that is coated in a thin layer of rhodium for extra strength and lustre.
Sarah Mulder Jewelry’s Gold collection uses a 2 micron thick layer 24k gold over a thin layer of Rhodium, with an Italian Brass Base, because Rhodium bonds wonderfully to brass and creates an incredibly high quality piece of fashion jewelry. Jewelry plated in rhodium is shinier and more durable than other metals.
ABOUT SARAH MULDER JEWELRY
Sarah Mulder Jewelry is imagined, designed and finished in Vancouver, Canada by painter and jewelry designer Sarah Mulder. Her designs are made from carved wax and set in molds. These beautiful pieces are plated in either 24k gold, or rhodium over brass and are paired with hand-cut semi-precious stones. Sarah works exclusively with family owned and operated small businesses to create beautifully finished pieces.
+ Avoid contact with skincare products or perfumes - allow these products to absorb into skin after application, prior to putting jewelry on
+ Remove jewelry before swimming or bathing
+ Avoid using solvents to clean plated metal as this may cause damage to the surface
+ The best way to avoid metal tarnishing is to prevent air circulation around it
+ Store in a closed jewelry box or case, or the pink travel pouch that accompanies this purchase (even a small sealed plastic bag would do the job)
