As a Nelson jeweller, many of our customers have rings that have been rhodium plated.
Rhodium is a precious metal that is generally not used in making jewellery, because it is very expensive and difficult to work with.
And yet, rhodium is fantastic for plating jewellery. It's beautiful white, mirror-like colour is perfect for making diamonds shine even brighter.
Hammer finishing is a technique Benjamin loves to use when crafting jewellery. A hammer finished ring, cuff or pendant produces a beautiful shimmering effect - reminiscent of the ocean or a faceted gemstone.
