How/If the rhodium fades depends on body chemistry.  Some people need to redip their rings every year, some go years and years without doing it.

I usually take my berricle ring off when i wash my hands but i have forgotten and washed with soap and it was fine, not cloudy.  just make sure you dry it well.  if you are going to be washing your hands multiple times a day (ie someone in the medical field), i’m not sure about that.  just don’t use toothpaste on the stone, that makes it cloudy.

if the disposable gloves have that powder inside, the ring will probably look dirty and maybe filmy?

@missmuffin72:  In my case, every rhodium plated ring I’ve owned has stated to look like crap within a month or two of daily wear. I don’t take my rings off though because then I just never remember to put them back on. The rhodium issue is why my “backup” engagement ring is CZ in gold, and I won’t buy anything in plated silver any more.

My skin destroys rhodium, but I’ve gotten years out of my Berricle rings and they still look nice.  I have 5? or more Berricle rings and none of the stones are cloudy yet.  Your mileage may vary.  I love Berricle so much that they’ve used my pictures on their pinterest page.  LOL

I have one berricle eternity band and I’m hoping the cz fades a little so it looks a tad more real. I’ve only worn it a few times, but I am worried the plating will wear off. I really love the ring, though.

I wear two bands and an Engagement Ring from there (for now!) and i’ve had no issues. the stone is sparkly! I just wash it with rubbing alcohol!

@soyjoy222:  If the stones are too white, you can bake it in the oven to make them warmer in color.  Check out the BetterThanDiamond forum for info on that.  I’ve done it to a few of mine and was pleased with the results.

I wear rhodium off really bad, let me just say that first. I have a few rings from Fantasy Jewelry Box where the rhodium stripped right off, and I don’t wear any of those rings 24/7. But with Berricle, I’ve noticed they are pretty high quality and take substantially longer to start showing wear than the rhodium plated SS rings I’ve purchased elsewhere. I haven’t seen rhodium coming off of any of my Berricle rings after many wearings/cleanings. I don’t shower or clean while wearing any silver rings though.

Interesting! I have recently purchased a couple of Berricle rings, and haven’t been wearing them regularly yet. My quetsion is, how visually obvious is it when the rhodium starts to wear off? Does it flake and look horrible? Because if it’s just a matter of silver showing underneath, I can’t see a problem unless the colour difference is evident. I have worn silver rings continuously for years without any damage to them, cleanign and under water and everything, so what is the difference here? Thanks for the info bees!
