One of the most frequently asked questions about plated jewelry is; “How long will the plating last?”


“plating” is shorthand for electroplating. This means that gold, rose gold, or rhodium plated jewelry is covered by a thin layer of the respective metal using a special process that combines chemistry and electricity. Dipping the jewelry in a chemical solution which contains either gold, rose gold, or rhodium and applying electricity, a thin layer of the metal grows on the jewelry piece.
