What is the Gold Plated Jewelry process

Posted on

Gold-plated jewelry has a very small percentage of gold to create the plating of the piece , a base metal goes through a series of processes and is eventually dipped into a bath of electroplating solution which contains particles of  gold.

When an electric current is applied, an electrochemical reaction occurs and a thin layer of gold is deposited onto the metal. This layer is much thinner than the coating of gold that covers gold-filled jewelry, which goes through a process of mechanically bonding and heating the gold to the base metal. Often Brass, Copper or Silver.
