A metal in the platinum group, rhodium is actually one of the rarest elements on earth. Used as a tarnish-resistant, oxide-resistant coating on jewelry, rhodium plating forms a silvery exterior finish on metals that might otherwise be susceptible to corrosion, such as sterling silver. Most rhodium plating on jewelry is done via electroplating, which creates an extremely thin, highly durable plated coating.
