Is Gold Plated Jewelry Real?
Today I wanted to talk about Gold Plating, what it is and what does it mean to purchase a piece that is 18k Gold Plated. Plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto a base metal such as copper, silver, aluminum, or stainless steel by a method called electroplating.
18K Gold indicates how much pure gold is added onto a base metal. 18K Gold plated rings, necklaces or bracelets have a thin layer of 75% pure gold deposited on them. Customers should remember that gold plated accessories are made of very durable materials, like copper and silver mentioned before, which means that such pieces of jewelry are also quite Tarnish and Fade resistant.
So, if you love golden jewelry, like earrings or bracelets, purchasing 18K Gold Plated jewelry will be the perfect choice. What’s more it can also be a nice gift for a dear friend or family member who also like to complete their outfit with great looking jewelry.
Talk to you soon!
