Rhodium plating generally fades from wear and tear. I haven’t heard of a rhodium plated ring wearing down in a store. Maybe a lot of people have tried the ring on in the store for several years and the plating’s worn off? That’s the only thing I can think of.

SapphierMe:  What is R1700? Are you talking about rand?

If you meant rand then that is not a good deal for a CZ band. The plating could have worn off in the store, I guess, if it was handled a lot. If it was previously owned it would probably show other marks (slight dings or scratches). Anyway if the jeweler is replacing all the stones and replating it, that kinda makes it new again. But don’t pay 1700 rand, if that is what you meant! Try Berricle.com, I’ve worn an eternity ring from them for 2 years, been really rough with it (all those traditional wife duties lol), and it’s in great condition! Plus it was so cheap, it’s easy to replace if it does end up damaged.

I dont think R1700 is bad but I don’t think it’s that great either…especially if he is going to replate it and change the stones. My replating cost a lil over R600.
