What are Electroplate real gold，imitate gold and electroplate 18k gold Meaning?Robin Wong
Electroplating of real gold refers to the use of real gold as a material for electroplating, and the surface of the alloy fittings will have a layer of real gold. Corresponding to this is electroplating imitation gold, which is to use other alternative materials to make the surface of the alloy reach a golden effect. The surface of the gold-plated jewelry will be brighter and more durable, and it will be more environmentally friendly. Usually, the cost of plating gold is more than three times that of imitation gold, so it is only used for medium and high-end jewelry.
The color of electroplating is divided into: 24k, 18k, 14k, 9k, etc. In addition, there are also rose gold, champagne gold, etc., all refer to the difference in plating color. Usually, only the plating of real gold can achieve these differences in color.
