What are Margarita Stones and Rhodium Plating?

Margarita Stones:

   The Margarita is a type of glass stone manufactured by Swarovski primarily used in costume jewelry from the 1960s and later. The name refers to the scalloped shape of the stone rather than a particular color, which can vary from bi-colored examples to solid colors.

   These stones are drilled in the middle and often set with a decorative rhinestone-tipped pin inserted through the center for that extra sparkle.


Rhodium Plating:

   Rhodium is a silver-white hard metal often found in platinum ores. It is the most expensive precious metal. In its natural solid state Rhodium is far too hard to work, but it is used as an alloy in the smelting of platinum and palladium.

Rhodium plating is a metal deposition process used to coat materials with a decorative and protective layer of rhodium. Rhodium is a noble metal that imparts an extremely bright and hard wearing finish when applied as plating. When applied as a thin plate, it affords a durable finish of exceptional brightness. Rhodium finishes can greatly enhance the appearance and longevity of any metal to which they are applied
