These modern and chic stud earrings are made with a center light yellowish-green Peridot semi-precious gemstone, 22k gold vermeil and cz accents in black rhodium. These are small and elegant studs.
Rhodium is normally white, and commonly used for years as plate to give a lustrous finish to white gold. Black rhodium is made by adding an ink dye that binds to the metal. Its extreme hardness and high melting point make it a difficult metal for jewelers to work, so pure rhodium jewelry is highly unusual.
