Whether you need to refresh the rhodium plating on your engagement ring, or you want to add some color to an older brooch with some new gold plating, our experts are here to help. We can plate an item in just about any color you'd like thanks to the excellent high-tech tools we have at our disposal, and we'll return your item to you looking as good as the day you bought it.
Each item of jewelry is unique, and in order to give your piece the best possible care, we take all of its particular features into account as we work on it. For each gold or rhodium plating project, however, we do follow the same general steps.
As you may already know if you have any white gold jewelry, white gold is almost always plated with rhodium to give it a bright white color. Rhodium plating may be used on other colors of gold as well. But no matter what type of metal is underneath, the rhodium will eventually wear away, especially in the spots that are subject to the most friction.
This is especially true of rings, which are constantly in contact with your skin and other elements in the environment. Fortunately, applying a new layer of rhodium plating is a quick and easy process for our professional craftsmen, and we'll quickly have your rings or other pieces sparkling white again.
Gold plating is also appropriate when an older layer of plating is wearing thin, but it can give you the freedom to change the color of a piece as well. For instance, if you have an old yellow gold ring that you like the design of but you prefer a different color, we can take care of that for you.
We use only the latest technological tools in our work, and that gives us the ability to restore the shine or adjust the color to all kinds of fine jewelry. We can work on your antique pendant or your new custom made engagement ring, and the results will be equally stunning. Our experts also have extensive knowledge of the industry, and so can advise you about the best way to get your piece looking just the way you want it.
I have to say, I've read a lot of the review and I have to agree with the lot of them. Joseph's was a great place to work with. They kept in contact with us through the entire process and custom designed our engagement rings from scratch. Being that my partner and I work in different industries, we had different needs. He needed a flush mount without channels and I like the texture channels provide. He also wanted a "little" more ornamentation than I did. Joseph (the owner) showed us the lab and introduced us to the people on his team. After we had a general idea his designer Ryan set to work on a 3D rendering of each and we were quite pleased. The rings were then cast in a wax mold so that we could come in and try them on before having the metal cast with the stones. This step provided for a great likeness to the actual rings and we were convinced they were the ones we wanted. From start to finish it took about 4 weeks and they were even completed a few days ahead of when we needed them. All in all, the communication and thorough staff were the key. When in comes to jewelry, like many things, you get what you pay for. And with something I was going to wear for the rest of my life I was willing to pay the price. There were quite willing to work with us on metals, price and options on our budget. I would totally recommend them again.
