Our jewelry is plated with palladium and rhodium, and as a result, will not tarnish for a very long time. Palladium, a precious metal which, unlike gold and platinum, is not spectacularly beautiful in itself, but just like those other precious metals, is non-reactive with the atmosphere and contact with the human body. It also is very useful for keeping the white shiny layer of rhodium securely attached to our silver jewelry. Rhodium itself does not adhere to silver as well. This extra precious metal plating is what helps to ensure that all silver jewelry that you purchase from us will stay beautiful for years to come.
