You can still rhodium plate it. The jeweller explained to me that where there are diamonds or other metals on a ring, they have to apply the rhodium with a brush (therefore, I think it costs more), not dip it. But it can definitely be done 🙂

You can dip it yes.  My SIL just had her entire YG set dipped and it’s amazing.  You would never be able to tell it was originally YG.

Apologies-just went back and read the bottom of the post.  I’m not a jeweler.. but Im certain there are many mixed metal sets out there that require re-dipping.  There has to be a way.

They typically use a masking laquer or similar compound to keep the rhodium solution from getting to the other metal color.

Thanks so much for the help! Anyone know the cost? Im sure it would be more than just regular dipping.

Agreed that they would likely mask the rose gold area, and then plate the remaining exposed white gold area.

Mrs.ZarinaN:  I have had rose and white gold dipped and the PP are correct they brush something over the rose gold, that keeps the rhodium from “sticking” sorry I dont know the correct term. Mine did not cost more and it looked great after.
