Let us know your finish choice, gold or rhodium when ordering.
This item is layered in gold or rhodium over our special semi-precious Jewelers Bronze base metal, coated in a special layer of Tarniban, an organic coating that gives protection and adds to the hardness for greater longevity and durability. Rhodium comes from the Platinum family and it is the most expensive of all the precious metals. Yes, even more expensive than Gold! Rhodium is a hypoallergenic silver-white metal (similar in appearance to highly polished Sterling Silver or White Gold) that is highly resistant to tarnishing and corrosion and is also extremely reflective. This pendant is constructed of from 20 to 50 Micro-inches of gold (or Rhodium) layered in Rhodium Layering, but none are pictured at this time. The pictured item has a 14 karat gold layered item. Our supplier checks every piece of Gold and Rhodium jewelry they manufacture with an X-ray Spectrometer machine. The Spectrometer gives a reliable coating analysis of all plated items, and verifies the precise thickness measurements of Gold and Rhodium layering. This quality control step assures a consistent thickness of all alloys and precious metals on any piece of jewelry they make and prevents premature plating failures. We are so confident of the quality of this fine jewelry item that we cover it with our Lifetime Replacement Warranty. Warranty Certificate shipped with item.
