Is gold-plated jewelry durable, long-lasting color?

This is a question that many of you are interested in when buying silver jewelry. In this article, we would like to share with you some information about gold-plating silver jewelry.

In a folkway, gilding is to paint a layer of gold on jewelry to make the color of the jewelry more beautiful (similar to painting the house, painting the door). So the question is, is that gold durable? And what causes the gilding to quickly fade?

Because it is formed like this, a lifelong color coating is impossible. Regular gold plating will last for 3-6 months in case of little use, less exposure to sweat, less friction, or less contact with water, chemicals containing a lot of chemicals such as detergent, dishwashing liquid…. So whether the coating is durable or not is up to the user.

How to preserve plated jewelry durable and long-lasting?

– Please pay attention when using plated jewelry: avoid contact with water, chemicals due to daily labor, sweat, seawater .., the plated product will keep a shiny yellow color for a long time.

– In case of gold-plated color fading, the product will fade slowly until it reveals the color inside, not falling into patches like other poor quality copper-plated iron metals. Our products which are made of 925 silver will be returned to the original white color.

– Note: if it is really not necessary to gold-plating, the pure white color of silver should be used because gold-plating silver is quickly faded and is not durable.
