What is gold plated jewellery?
Gold plated jewellery is an affordable alternative to pure gold jewellery. It was invented in 1805 by Luigi Brugnatelli, an Italian chemist. Gold plated jewellery can be simple or designer pieces and is available from well-known brands.
Gold plated jewellery is not the same as pure gold or solid gold jewellery. On 18K gold plated jewellery, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the surface of the jewellery made of sterling silver, brass, or copper.
The gold coating on gold plated jewellery ranges from 10k to 24k purity. The purer the gold used, the brighter yellow it looks and the closer its resemblance to solid gold jewellery.
How long will gold plated jewellery last?
Gold plated jewellery is a great way to get the look of gold without the high price tag. However, it's important to know that gold plated jewellery does require some special care. With proper maintenance, your gold plated jewellery should last a long time. If the gold plating begins to wear off or looks dull, it can usually be replaced. Just reminder that replating works best on simple, plain designs without too much detail or texture.
