Your gold-plating questions answered
What are ‘gold-plated’ rings? Are they the same as real gold rings?
Gold-plated rings are not solid gold rings, but that doesn’t mean they are fake. The gold plating on the base metal is absolutely real gold!
Gold-plated rings are electroplated with a layer of real 22k/18k/14k gold on a base metal, such as silver or brass. A premium quality gold-plated ring will have a gold layer of thickness anywhere between 2 and 3 microns.
How long does gold plating last on rings?
Gold-plated rings can easily last up to three years if handled properly and used with care. The following points will determine the life of your gold-plated jewellery.
• Is the gold plating thick? The thicker the electroplating, the longer-lasting will be the golden glow of your ring.
• What is the base metal? The use of a good base metal, such as sterling silver, guarantees that the plating will last longer
• How often do you wear your gold-plated rings? You can happily wear your gold-plated rings frequently to work, coffee dates and parties! But preferably not in the shower, while washing dishes or working up a sweat at the gym!
Types of gold plating in rings
High-quality gold-plated rings come with hallmarked 14k/18k/22k gold plating on sterling silver. Just like solid gold rings, gold-plated rings are also available in rose, white and black tones.
Solid silver gold-plated rings
Precious and durable, gold-plated sterling silver rings offer the best of both worlds: strength and value of the hallmarked silver base and the warmth of glowing gold. When the plating is done in 18k gold, silver goldplated rings are also known as gold vermeil. It is a premium quality gold plating which has 925 sterling silver as base.
22k or 24k gold-plated rings
A ring with 22k or sometimes 24k gold plating on solid silver or brass is as close to the real thing as it can get visually. Both 24k and 22k gold-plated rings look indistinguishable but the 22k variant is more resistant and durable.
18k gold-plated rings
Very popular, the 18k gold-plated rings are great for daily styling. These offer the magic of gold at extremely affordable rates and are widely used for daily styling as well as gifting. Rings in 18k gold plating come in all available tones of gold.
Rose gold-plated rings
When silver or brass is plated with 14k/18k rose gold, we get the beautiful and romantic versions of rosy-hued gold-plated rings! Less expensive than the solid rose gold versions, these demi-fine rose gold rings are guaranteed eye-grabbers.
White gold-plated silver rings
White gold is a huge trend and gold-plated rings in the pristine tones of white gold are equally popular. Loved for their elegant, neutral sheen, these can easily be incorporated into every kind of look.
