* Electroplating Effect




Plating is a surface covering where a metal is coats a conductive surface. Plating is used in fashion jewelry, to harden, to improve wearability, to reduce friction, to improve paint adhesion, and for other purposes, making its production cost less and cheaper. Jewelry typically uses plating to give a silver or gold finish. There are several plating methods, and many variations.


Gold
Gold plating is a thin coating of electroplated or mechanically plated gold on top of a base metal. Gold is alloyed mixed with other metals, usually silver and copper to make it less expensive, harder, and longer lasting. 10 karat gold is about 43.5% gold.


Gold Plated Jewelry

Gold-plated jewelry is made by covering a base metal, usually silver, with a very thin layer of gold. Since the gold layer is so thin and reactive with silver, it will eventually wear away despite your best attempts to preserve it. This wearing away process can take as little as a year depending on whether a barrier was created to separate the silver and gold layers. Usually, a copper barrier will be used to slow down the reactive process. With the copper barrier, the gold-plating will still wear away, but it will take much longer than a year for it to do so.

Our fashion jewelry (named as gold plated) listing on the site, has the best plating technology in China. Its plating layer thickness is about 0.2 - 0.3 micron. Its trendy and amazing designs are very popular with many jewelry wholesalers.
Generally, our gold plated jewelry will last 1-2 year at good jewelry care. In most time, it may not be necessary to wear long time because the designs of fashion jewelry update quick, most people much more like the latest ones.


Gold Filled Jewelry

We all know that gold is not inexpensive, and these days the spot price is going upwards of $500 an ounce. An economical alternative that keeps a solid layer of gold in contact with your eyes and skin is gold filled jewelry. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It has far more gold than the few microns coating of gold in gold plate, a hundred or more times the amount of gold, actually. Under normal wear with reasonable care that you would give any precious metal jewelry, gold filled jewelry will not peel or flake and can be treasured as anheirloom piece. It is tarnish-resistant and is safe for most people with sensitive skin who can wear solid gold jewelry.


IP Gold
Gold Ion Plating (PVD) IP gold plating is one of the most advanced surface finishing processes in the jewelry trade today. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is made up of thin layers of metal that are bonded together through a rig. In traditional gold plating processes, the gold coating on the surface rubs off over time. However, Ion plating makes the gold plating more durable, more wear resistant, and also has a higher luster. With proper care, gold ion plated jewelry will last for decades, longer than traditional fashion jewelry. Not only is it longer lasting but also it is more sustainable than traditional plating processes.


Rose Gold
Rose gold, also known as pink gold or red gold, is a mixture of pure yellow gold with a high percentage of copper, which gives it a rosy tint; this process is bonded through an electrical process to a base metal core.


IP Rose Gold
Rose Gold Ion Plating (PVD) Rose gold jewelry is alluringly beautiful and flattering against all skin tones, just gold mixed with copper. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is made up of thin layers of metal that are bonded together through a rig. Using one of the most advanced surface finishing processes in the jewelry trade today, Rose Gold Lust is quality crafted using our new gold ion plating process that is more durable, more wear resistant, and has a higher luster than traditional plating processes.


Silver
Silver plating is the process of bonding an extremely thin layer of silver to a base metal; most commonly used are copper, brass, white metal, or nickel. Most often, silver plating relates to jewelry, but other items can also be covered in silver.


Rhodium
Jewellery made from a base metal with a thin layer of rhodium applied to the surface. After some extensive research, as well as our in-house testing, we will now be rhodium plating all of our Teemtry® white-gold jewelry, at our cost. The improved appearance of rhodium plating was initially noticed because of its extra beauty to the naked eye, but as the points below will show, it not only enhances the beauty of both white gold, it helps ensure the longest-lasting, most durable finish for your jewelry. The result:  stunning jewelry that stays stunning much longer than un-plated white gold.


Ruthenium
Ruthenium is a gunmetal finish. To create a darker appearance black nickel is added to the ruthenium to give the gunmetal finish.


Two-Tone
Two-tone gold plating is any type of decorative piece that is created using two different types of gold plating. The color and purity of this precious metal can be altered when combined with other metal alloys, such as silver, copper, and zinc.


IP Two-Tone
Two-Tone Ion Plating (PVD) is a combination of two platings or tones, for example, a combination of IP Rose Gold and IP Gold. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is made up of thin layers of metal that are bonded together through a rig. Ion plating makes the plating more durable, more wear resistant, and also has a higher luster. With proper care, ion plated jewelry will last for decades, longer than traditional fashion jewelry. Not only is it longer lasting but also it is more sustainable than traditional plating processes.


IP Three-Tone
Three-Tone Ion Plating (PVD) is a combination of three platings or tones, for example, polished stainless steel, IP Rose Gold and IP Gold. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is made up of thin layers of metal that are bonded together through a rig.  Ion plating makes the plating more durable, more wear resistant, and also has a higher luster. With proper care, ion plated jewelry will last for decades, longer than traditional fashion jewelry. Not only is it longer lasting but also it is more sustainable than traditional plating processes because of the little to no pollutants after producing.


Cloisonné Enamel
Enamel is a kind of glass fused to metal at high temperatures [around 800 degrees Centigrade]. Enameling adds a beautiful touch to metals. It takes a "regular" piece of jewelry and makes it unique. Most enameling is done by hand and takes a steady hand and with good eye. Enameling may have been invented independently in around the world.


Matte
Jewelry which has a non-reflective metal surface is referred to as having a matte finish as opposed to jewelry that is highly polished. The surface will appear frosted, uniformly scratched or brushed and is created using various techniques including a chemical processes, sand blasting, tumble polishing or created by hand using abrasives.


Antique
Antique is the plating that has been made to look aged, having a darkened or tarnished appearance.


IP Black
Black Ion Plating (PVD) is a black metal plating. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is made up of thin layers of metal that are bonded together through a rig. Ion plating makes the plating more durable, more wear resistant, and also has a higher luster. With proper care, ion plated jewelry will last for decades, longer than traditional fashion jewelry. Not only is it longer lasting but also it is more sustainable than traditional plating processes because of the little to no pollutants after producing.

    I'm so excited! I came across your site and I was thrilled to see your gorgeous designs. I was looking for some rings and your rings are exactly what I had in mind; in fact, they’re even better. And I just wanted to say thank you for my rings. They look beautiful! They look even better in person than in the photos. When I took them out and saw them I said, "Praise the Lord!" Hehe. That's how beautiful they are.
