Back to black with rhodium!

Posted by Douglas Siu on

The deep gunmetal finish of black rhodium plate and the pure black of ruthenium are both becoming increasingly popular.

Platinum’s sister metals are produced mainly for industrial uses but in jewelry pieces it provides a deep gunmetal finish and has appeared in pieces sold by established brands like Tiffany and Links of London.

Rhodium is normally white, and commonly used for years as plate to give a lustrous finish to white gold. Black rhodium is made by adding an ink dye that binds to the metal.
