WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF PLATED JEWELRY VS. GOLD OR SILVER FILLED JEWELRY?
Gorgeous, shiny jewelry adds class and elegance to any outfit. When purchasing jewelry, most people tend to seek out pieces that are made with precious metals because they are high in value, beautiful, and – most importantly – are hypo-allergenic so even people with the most sensitive skin can wear them with pride. However, solid gold, sterling silver, and gold-filled jewelry tends to come with a hefty price tag. Silver and gold-plated is an excellent option for those who would like the benefits and appearance of high-end jewelry without the high-end price tag.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRECIOUS METALS AND PLATED JEWELRY?
The major difference between precious metals and plated jewelry is plating is made up of a combination of metals in order to create the appearance of precious metal jewelry. We use copper and other plating techniques to bond gold to the base metal.
HOW MUCH GOLD IS IN YOUR PLATING?
Our gold chain for example is 18K gold plate. It is made of a multiple step plating process. The amount of gold in our plating can vary slightly but usually measures approximately 1 mils in thickness (25.4 microns).
