What is gold plating? Is it really gold?
High-quality gold-plated designer earrings are plated with a layer of real gold ranging from 22k, 18k, or 14k purity. The plating is usually 0.5-3 microns thick. A thick gold plating of 2 to 3 microns makes more durable earrings. Earrings with gold plating have variations in their gold tone, just like real gold ones. You’ll find hues of rich, shiny yellow gold, cool white gold, and feminine rose gold.
Gold in varied purities is used to electroplate any metal base like sterling silver (gold vermile), copper, or brass to make gold-plated earrings. We highly recommend gold vermile studs in this category. Gold vermile is a thick plating of gold on a sterling silver base.
