A few years ago, we suspended production of rhodium plated beads
because of a large increase in the cost.
We had hoped to resume production by now, but the price continues
to be very high and unstable, so we have not produced them.
Recently however, we have developed alternate platings for these
beads using palladium.
The images below show the comparison between the rhodium AB coating
and the new palladium AB coating.
We hope you will find these substitute colors satisfactory.
