My white gold jewelry is starting to look worn, what can be done to restore the white color?
We offer polishing and rhodium plating to restore the natural white color of your jewelry.

White gold jewelry is plated with a microscopic layer of rhodium to enhance the white color of the alloyed gold. In rhodium plating, the remaining layers of rhodium are polished off and a new layer is deposited on the surface of the jewelry.
How do you resize a ring?
Our jewelers will insert or remove a small amount of metal to increase or decrease the size of the ring. We can use standard sizing, or should you require, you can work directly with our jeweler as he fine tunes the size to your finger.
Our jewelers can work in any precious metal, but please be aware that in some cases it is not possible to resize a ring due to the design of the ring or the way in which gems may be set.
