@nerdybird:  I’m obviously from a different area, but I’ve taken my rings to a local, small, family owned jewelery shop and they were able to do the rhodium plating very quick. I got the rings back 2 days after dropping them off. It was $25/ring. I think you may have better luck with a smaller store than a big chain one that has to send their work out to a seperate jeweller. If there’s one on site, I think they’ll be a lot quicker.

I would check more local jewelers. I have a couple who will do it as I wait for about $20-25 which I hear is low but that’s what I pay. Good luck. Keep looking and calling around.

I’m not sure where you are located, but I took a ring to a Kay jewelers for rhodium and they had it back to me in a week.  Not sure if that helps….

A lot of chain stores can do it, but not all of them have electroplating equipment. I’d just call around.

Like Hyperventilate said, just call around.  There are stores that I know do it in minutes and stores that take days because they send it out.

Try a custom jeweler.

My local jeweler set my stone AND rhodium dipped the ring for $50. He had it ready overnight, mostly because it is the busy time of year and I didnt take it in until 5:00 PM (they close at 5:30.)

Have you tried a local jewellery shop? My guy does it for free in 2 hours because that’s where I got my ring, but he usually only charges £8 for the same service. They might be more flexible than a chain place?
