What is Gold-plated Jewellery? Everything You Need to Know

Gold-plated jewellery offers a luxurious and affordable alternative to solid gold pieces, making it a popular choice for fashion-conscious individuals. At Saras Beads & Jewellery, a leading name in gemstone jewellery, we delve into everything you need to know about gold- plated jewellery, including its composition, care, and appeal. 

What is Gold-plated Jewellery?

Gold-plated jewellery is crafted by coating a base metal (such as brass or copper) with a thin layer of gold through electroplating. This process involves depositing a layer of gold onto the surface of the base metal using an electrical current. The result is a stunning piece of jewellery that mimics the appearance of solid gold at a fraction of the cost.

Composition of Gold-plated Jewellery

Gold-plated jewellery typically consists of a base metal, such as brass or copper, which serves as the foundation for the piece. The base metal is then coated with a thin layer of gold,

ranging from 10 to 24 karats. The karat refers to the purity of the gold used in the plating process.

Advantages of Gold-plated Jewellery

Affordability: Gold-plated jewellery is more budget-friendly than solid gold pieces, making it accessible to a broader audience.

Versatility: Gold plating allows for creative designs and intricate detailing, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the jewellery.

Hypoallergenic: Gold-plated jewellery is generally hypoallergenic, making it suitable for sensitive skin. 

Care and Maintenance of Gold-plated Jewellery 

To prolong the beauty and longevity of your gold-plated jewellery, it's essential to follow proper care and maintenance techniques:

Avoid Exposure to Chemicals: Remove gold-plated jewellery before swimming or using household cleaners, as exposure to chemicals can damage the gold plating.

Store Properly: Store gold-plated jewellery in a dry and air-tight container when not in use to prevent tarnishing and scratches.

Clean Gently: Use a soft cloth to gently wipe off dirt and oils from the jewellery. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals that can strip away the gold plating.
