What is Plated Jewelry?
2019-03-15 14:56:48

    You most certainly know what gold jewelry is, but do you know what it means for a piece to be gold plated? Plating can make a big difference when it comes to the price you pay for your jewelry, as plated pieces are usually cheaper than solid ones.

    Generally, plating is the process through which a piece of jewelry made from a certain metal or alloy is covered with a layer of another metal. For example, a copper or silver ring with a layer of gold on top would be sold as gold plated.
Pieces plated with a certain metal are usually cheaper than the ones made entirely from it.Gold plated jewelry will cost less than an analogous piece made mostly from gold. So, if money is an important consideration, you might want to go with plated jewelry.

    As you might expect, picking the cheaper option also has its disadvantages.For starters, the plating that covers your jewelry will inevitably wear away. The thicker the outer layer, the more time it will take before it wears away and the lower layer becomes visible.At that point, you can take the piece to your jeweler to get it replated. The problem with replating is that it costs money and some metals, such as gold or rhodium, are very expensive.
