Rhodium Plated .925 Sterling Silver Ring with Genuine Ruby Center and CZ Baguettes and Paves - A Sherri Delene Original Design
Item #SD LumRed: R Ruby
This ring is the first in my Luminous Red line.
Glamour and Bling! This is a design I've had in my head for a while and I've been so excited to see it come to life. It is a mix of vintage shape with modern styling. The outer flowered edges are lined with pave CZs in thick rhodium plated sterling silver. The inner CZ baguettes are topped with a genuine ruby center held by four sterling silver prongs. Rhodium plating gives it a satiny finish and protects from tarnish.
Please stayed tuned for matching pieces in the coming months! Planned are 2 earring styles (a button and a dangle), and two necklaces (a pendant and a statement style necklace).
WHAT IS RHODIUM?
Rhodium Plating provides protection for our sterling silver and white gold jewelry, coating it to help prevent tarnish and scratches. Although we use a thicker coating than the norm, a rhodium finish, however, is not impervious to the effects of everyday wear and abrasion. To limit wear one should avoid household cleaning, gardening, and other activities that can destroy the rhodium plating. If wear does occur, most jewelry can be re-plated with rhodium at a local jeweler for a minimal cost. The plating on pendants and earrings lasts longer than on rings, as they are not exposed to friction. Here are some tips for keeping your rhodium plated jewelry looking its best:
Do not use any abrasive cloths for polishing.
Do not use chemical cleaners.
Clean only with mild soap and water.
Keep your item in a small ziplock bag to keep it from rubbing against other jewelry in your jewelry box. (We recommend that for all jewelry; not just plated pieces.)
Enjoy the beauty of rhodium plated jewelry, an affordable way to capture the platinum appeal.
