Consumer Advice : Q & A
HOW TO MAINTAIN THE BEAUTY OF WHITE GOLD JEWELRY
Why does white gold jewelry turn yellow?
It's natural for white gold to "fade" showing a slightly yellowish color. Pure gold is very yellow and adding white alloys like zinc and nickel can only dilute the color. Most white gold rings are flash plated with a thin coating of rhodium (a pure white metal) to give a more brilliant white appearance.
Can this be fixed?
Yes, at My Jewel Shop, Inc. we are able to polish and re-plate white gold jewelry for minimal cost.
How often should I re-plate my jewelry?
In my experience it depends on the jewelry item and the lifestyle of the wearer. For example, earrings and pendants almost never need re-plating, however rings, chains, and bracelets do. I have customers that re-rhodium annually and others that never notice the subtle change in metal color. If it becomes bothersome to the wearer then it's worth investing in a cleaning, polishing and rhodium plating. Personally, I think it's worth a "spa" day for your jewelry every few years to keep it looking it's best. When jewelry comes in for repair, re-plating is usually included in the price.
How do I avoid this problem?
Remove your jewelry when swimming in a pool or ocean as well as when doing manual and physical labor. Another solution is to wear platinum jewelry, a true white metal that needs no plating.
Remember, your jewelry is meant to give you nothing but pleasure, so wear and enjoy and we're here to take care of any maintenance.
