When it comes to selecting the perfect piece of jewellery, the choice between gold plated jewellery and solid gold often arises. Within the realm of gold plating, two methods stand out: the traditional gold plating technique and the modern Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating process. Let's dive into the world of gold plated jewellery and explore why PVD plating may just be the superior choice.
The Timeless Appeal of Gold Plated Jewellery
For centuries, gold plated jewellery has been cherished for its ability to exude luxury without the extravagant price tag. It's the artful application of a thin layer of gold onto a base metal that grants jewellery its radiant golden glow. This technique allows for a diverse array of designs, making it a versatile choice for a variety of styles.
Traditional Gold Plating: Classic Beauty with a Limited Lifespan
The classic method of gold plating involves electroplating a thin layer of gold onto the surface of a base metal, typically via a chemical process. While undeniably elegant, traditional gold plating has a tendency to tarnish and discolor over time. This natural aging process, often accelerated by factors like exposure to chemicals or moisture, can dim the lustre of the piece.
PVD Gold Plating: Elevating Durability to New Heights
Enter Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating, a modern technique that raises the bar in terms of longevity and resilience. PVD, or Physical Vapor Deposition, is an advanced coating process that results in a more durable finish compared to standard gold plating.
Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating: A Shield of Resilience
With Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating, a thin layer of gold is meticulously bonded to stainless steel through a process that creates a robust, long-lasting finish. This method creates a molecular bond between the metal and the gold, resulting in jewellery that resists wear, tarnish, and scratches. The outcome? A piece that retains its brilliance even after years of wear.
Making an Informed Choice
The choice between traditional and Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating hinges on your individual preferences and lifestyle. While traditional gold plating exudes timeless elegance, it may require more delicate handling. On the other hand, Stainless Steel PVD Gold Plating caters to those seeking durable, everyday pieces that withstand the test of time.
