What is Gold Plated Jewellery?

Plated jewellery is when a metal layer covers another piece of metal. In this case, a layer of gold covers a different metal such as brass, silver or copper. Because of this, gold plated jewellery is generally a lot cheaper to buy than solid gold pieces.

Is it Worth Buying Gold Plated Jewellery?

Some people wonder if it’s worth buying gold plated jewellery. If you consider the price difference, then yes, it 100% is.

Not to mention, other pieces of jewellery that are coloured instead of plated tend to be much lower in quality, and if you keep replacing these pieces, they will quickly ring up a pretty expensive bill.

Gold plating also allows you to wear genuine gold with a much lighter price tag, so your wardrobe won’t need to suffer whatever the size of your wallet.

Another perk from opting for gold plated is it also allows you to collect a number of different styles. So, rather than investing in one or two particular looks or chains, you can extend your aesthetic and build on an impressive collection of statement pieces.

How Long Does Gold Plated Jewellery Last?

In general, well maintained and cared for gold-plated jewellery can last around two years before the piece begins to wear or tarnish.

Here are a few ways you can maintain your gold plated jewellery:

  • Remove it before swimming in chlorine or saltwater.
  • Remove before doing activities that will make you sweat.
  • Only put on your jewellery after you’ve applied lotions, make-up, perfumes or colognes.
  • Store your jewellery in a safe place, away from other hard items.
  • Wipe after each use.

Here at Bling King, you can find a great selection of jewellery in a range of designs. Find the right chain for your aesthetic to keep you looking fresh.
