In this article we will explain in detail how black ruthenium works and what role the rare metal ruthenium plays in it. Immerse yourself with us in the world of black electroplating and find out why this process is sought after by jewelers and jewelry lovers.

I. What is Black Ruthenium and how does it work?

Black ruthenium plating is an electroplating process in which a thin layer of ruthenium is applied to the surface of jewelry. Ruthenium, a rare metal from the platinum group, is characterized by its exceptional properties that make it an ideal choice for jewelry finishing.

The process of black ruthenium plating begins with a thorough cleaning of the jewelry to ensure a flawless surface. The jewelry is then immersed in a special electrolyte solution that contains ruthenium. By applying electrical voltage during the electroplating process, ruthenium ions are deposited evenly on the jewelry surface, forming a black coating.

II. The fascinating metal ruthenium:

Ruthenium is a transition metal that belongs to the platinum group and is rarely found in nature. It was first discovered by Karl Klaus in 1844 and is known for its exceptional properties, which make it a valued material in jewelry finishing.

The metal composition of ruthenium:

Ruthenium is a hard metal characterized by high hardness, corrosion resistance and remarkable strength. It is resistant to acids and bases, making it an ideal material for jewelry finishing to ensure the longevity of the plating.

III. Advantages of black ruthenium:

  • Aesthetics: Black Ruthenium plated jewelry has an elegant, mysterious and timelessly appealing black surface.
  • Hardness and durability: The ruthenium coating gives the jewelry additional hardness and corrosion resistance.
  • Uniqueness: Every black ruthenized piece of jewelry is unique because slight variations in the coating give it an individual touch.
