Wire to hang jewelry in plating bath


#1

In regards to my last post concerning rhodium plating over sterling
silver.

What is the best material to use for the wire used to hang the
jewelry on during plating? It seems that everyone has their own
preference. Is there a standard?

Thank you

Use the recommended by the plating bath chemical company.

Everyone I’ve ever spoken to says to use gold wire. I use 14k gold
wire to plate rhodium, etc.

Does the 14K wire discolour, or does it just get plated cleanly
along with the item hanging on it?
