Why Plated Jewelry Instead of Real Gold or Silver?

Why Plated Jewelry Instead of Real Gold or Silver?
Precious metals like Gold and silver have always been a symbol of status and class for centuries. Due to its rarity, gold was only possessed by those who had wealth and influence, be it man or a woman. That is why we see the royal families adorning themselves with gold and silver jewelry to showcase that status. Now due to globalization and increase of the middle class, everyone wants to possess the expensive looking commodities. That is where the demand for plated or fashion jewelry has increased.

There are three types of gold jewelry that is being sold now. Solid Gold, gold filled and gold plated. Gold in the pure form is a soft metal that is not suitable to wear. Thus it is combined with another metal to make it sturdier and which can be molded to form jewelry. That is where gold filled or rolled jewelry comes in form. This type of jewelry has a base metal of sterling silver or brass. Its coating is thicker than plating to make it more durable and can last for 5 to 30 years. Its value is cheaper than solid gold because of smaller quantity of gold being used.

Gold plated jewelry is basically a base metal of copper, nickel, silver or other metals which is covered with a thin layer of gold through the process of electrolysis. The minuscular layer of gold enables this form of jewelry to cost much less while retaining the shine and charm of solid gold jewelry. There are variations of plated jewelry which depends on the base metal that is used. The finest quality of plated jewelry is that which has a sterling silver base metal. This gives the jewelry a distinctive charm and shine that is unlike pure gold jewelry.

Pure silver on the other hand, gets oxidized and rusted with time thus loses its charm after a while. It requires periodic polishing to make it look new. In order to avoid that, pure silver is also made into an alloy, sterling silver, to attain its shine for a longer time.

This shining gold and silver metals popularity is because of their high luster and beauty. The increasing gold and silver prices have made economical people impossible to buy this precious jewelry and turn to other alternatives. Plated jewelry has many benefits in the modern world but nothing comes cheap without a price.

Advantages Of Women Jewelry In Pakistan
The pros of plated jewelry are that it’s much cheaper than precious metal jewelry and anyone can afford it. Women crave for variety and creativity with her looks. Thus, plated jewelry comes in unique styles and designs. Its low cost and affordability enables women to buy more and create a collection of various kinds of jewelry according to their liking.

With advanced jewelry making technology, it is very difficult for anyone to spot the difference between plated jewelry and solid precious metal one for a certain time period. Women are now mixing plated jewelry with the real one because it’s economical and people won’t notice the difference.

With the increase in crime rate, plated jewelry acts as a less risky investment. With their negligible resale value, no snatcher would want to steal these.

Plated jewelry is also easier to maintain. As gold jewelry has to be polished periodically, plated ones just have to be kept away from high intensity Sun exposure and not wear regularly.

On the other hand, there are some cons of purchasing plated jewelry. Most importantly it has a short life span, as the gold plating fades away with time exposing the base metal. If the base metal is of nickel, copper or brass, it may cause allergic reactions to certain people against their skin. Therefore it is important to re-plate these jewelry pieces in order to avoid such incidences.
With the fast growing consumer demand, everyone wants accessibility to everything. When it comes to purchasing jewelry online, consumers will think twice before ordering it due to its high value. But there is no limitation when it comes to plated jewelry as many fashion retailers offer these pieces online at a bargain price.
