How Does the Polishing Work?
Our experts have been trained in the best polishing techniques. We use a gentle polishing
compound and a buffing machine to make your rings shine like new. We then place your item in
our ultrasonic cleaner which will remove any traces of the polishing compound from your ring.
Hand sanitizer and moisturizers are also prone to coating rings and leaving them looking dull.
Our ultrasonic will also remove these from your items. This process takes approximately 5
minutes and can be done while you wait.
Have you noticed your white gold jewellery gradually losing its bright white appearance and
turning faintly yellow? This happens because most white gold jewellery is finished with a
process called rhodium plating. It is normal for this plating to wear off over the years. All gold is
yellow when it is mined from the earth. It is then alloyed with various metals to create white
gold. It is then rhodium plated to give it a crisp, bright white appearance. The experts at Troy
Shoppe Jewellers have found that polishing will often make your white gold rings look white
again. However, if polishing doesn’t work, you can leave your item to be rhodium plated. We’ll
have your jewellery looking just like new! Contact us today for more information.
