7 Things you didnโ€™t know about gold plating

Updated: Mar 14



Gold. Itโ€™s festive, mesmerizing, luxurious, and perfect with almost any look. But you already knew that, so here are 7 new things you may not have already discovered about gold plating:


1. Gold plated jewelry is usually made of a metal called brass, that is then plated with gold

2. The coating is created using a chemical process, in which the jewel is immersed in a โ€œgold bathโ€

(a true jewelry spa๐Ÿ˜‚)

3. The quality of the coating depends on its thickness, as well as how long the jewelry piece spends in the โ€œbathtub.โ€ The longer the tub time = the better the quality of coating.

4. Most of the coatings available on the market today are either โ€˜flash coatingsโ€™ (very thin and lower quality) or โ€˜thicker coatingsโ€™ (the thickness index is called microns)

5. Carat is the measure that determines how much pure gold is in a piece of jewelry. These measurements range from 9K to 24K.

6. The coating we make is a 24K nickel-free micron coating. This means people who are sensitive to the material can wear the jewelry comfortably and without worries.

7. Even gold-plated jewelry can lose some of it's sparkle, but if kept properly, it can stay in excellent condition for a long time.
