    Hello,

    I went to my local jewelry store to get my cross plated it is 10k in decent shape nothing out of the ordinary I just wanted it white.

    The first day I saw it , it looked great just a few deep areas where I still saw yellow but I could live with it. Not using it leaving it on my dresser away from everything a few days later I noticed spots? on the left and right arms of the cross I noticed 4 circular spots of the under color coming through.

    I took it back they said that it must be something like chlorine that was on the cross maybe through it’s life or another chemical which is making their plating not take?
    They said if they were to do the process over again it would have the exact same issues.
    These spots were not there prior on the very light yellow 10k gold.

    I know nothing about jewelry I just felt this looked like poor workmanship only reason I am asking this question here. I appreciate any feedback I thank you.

    Joey

    Since there is no such thing as “white gold” Rhodium is used to plate yellow gold to give it the appearance of white gold. Depending how often the jewelry in question is worn and how your skin reacts to metals will determine how often you will need to add another rhodium plating.
