Electroplating is the process of adding a thin metal coating on top of another metal through electric current. This can be done on chains, jewelry components & findings or finished pieces. Adding a thin layer of precious metal over your jewelry designs can increase the value of a piece or improve the finish.
If you want to offer the same design but in two metal colors, plating is a great option. Also, if you work with gold-filled and are soldering pieces together, the finished piece needs to be plated in gold to protect all the soldering points from tarnishing. Most small jewelry businesses don’t have the time, money or space to have their own plating equipment. The process of electroplating jewelry is very meticulous and uses harsh chemicals, because of this many jewelers outsource this task.
