GOLD PLATED is a kind of electroplating process for jewelry, which refers to plating a thin layer of gold on the surface of the jewelry. GOLD PLATED is divided into two categories, one is the homogeneous material GOLD PLATED, and the other is the heterogeneous material GOLD PLATED. Homogeneous material GOLD PLATED refers to the GOLD PLATED treatment on the surface of gold jewelry. Its meaning is to improve the brightness and color of jewelry. The heterogeneous material GOLD PLATED refers to the GOLD PLATED treatment on the surface of non-gold materials, such as silver plating and copper plating. Its meaning is to replace the color of the plated material with the luster of gold, thereby enhancing the ornamental effect of jewelry. GOLD PLATED has the lowest cost, but its luster will not last for a long time, and it will eventually lose its beautiful luster, and the gold-plated material may irritate sensitive skin and cause allergies.
GOLD VERMEIL is also an electroplating process for jewelry. It is different from GOLD PLATED. The thickness of GOLD VERMEIL plating is much thicker than that of GOLD PLATED, which can protect the jewelry for a longer time. Compared with GOLD FILLED, it is lighter and thinner. On the one hand, GOLD VERMEIL is more cost-effective than GOLD PLATED and GOLD FILLED in silver jewelry, and it is suitable for all skin types without causing allergies.
