Your gold-plating questions answered
What are ‘gold-plated’ earrings? Are they the same as real gold earrings?
Gold-plated earrings are your affordable, budget-friendly versions of their expensive solid gold counterparts. Gold-plated earrings are not real gold earrings, but that doesn’t mean they are fake. The gold plating on the base metal is absolutely real gold!
Gold-plated earrings are plated with a layer of real 22k/18k/14k gold on a base metal, such as silver or brass. A premium quality gold-plated earring will have a gold layer of thickness anywhere between 2 and 3 microns.
How long does gold plating last on earrings?
Gold-plated earrings can easily last up to three years if handled and used with love and care. The following questions will determine the life of your gold plated jewellery.
• How thick is the gold plating? Plating thickness determines that it does not wear off too quickly
• What is the base metal? The choice of a good base metal, such as silver, guarantees that the plating will last longer
• How often do you wear your gold-plated earrings? The more in use, the sooner the gold plating will wear thin. • When and where? You can joyfully wear your gold plated earrings to work, coffee dates and parties! But not in the shower, while washing dishes or working up a sweat at the gym!
Types of gold plated earrings
High-quality gold plated earrings come in hallmarked 14k/18/22k gold plating on sterling silver. Just like solid gold earrings, gold-plated earrings are also available in rose, white and black versions.
Solid silver gold-plated earrings
Precious and durable, gold-plated sterling silver earrings offer the best of both worlds: strength and value of the hallmarked silver metal base and the look of warm glowing gold. The solid silver gold-plated earrings are a piece to be cherished and enjoyed.
22k or 24k gold-plated earrings
Any earring with 22k or sometimes 24k gold plating on solid silver or brass is as close to the real thing as it can get. Being the purest form of gold, earrings plated with this 24k need a little extra care, as 24 karat is soft and sensitive to scratches.
Both 24k and 22k gold plated earrings look like earrings in yellow gold but 22k is more resistant to aberrations.
Rose gold plated earrings
18k-14k gold with a higher percentage of the red-metal copper makes rose gold. When silver or brass is plated with rose gold, we get beautiful and romantic versions of rosy-hued gold-plated earrings! Less expensive than the solid rose gold versions, these demi-fine rose gold earrings are guaranteed eye-grabbers.
White gold plated silver earrings
18k white gold can also be plated on silver or brass to make exquisite earrings in elegant and cool white-gold tones.
