I’ve noticed several manufacturers are supplying white gold pieces,
rhodium plated, that have the whitish look of (unplated) sterling. My
own work that is rhodium plated is darker and steel-colored, like
platinum. It always has been this way and it’s no surprise to me�
except many customers are now asking for that whitish look. Why is
there a difference in color? Are they using an additive to the
solution? Are they underplating with something?
