Electroplating is a technique which is used to coat items with a metal substance. Many items can be transformed and restored using electroplating. Electroplating techniques include gold plating, silver plating, rhodium plating, electroforming and vermeil finishes. Gold plating is a very popular technique which is used on many items of jewellery. Electroplating can be done on many different metals to transform them and any jewellery item you see advertised as being silver or gold plated will have been through the electroplating process.

It is not only jewellery that electroplating is used on. Some of the other popular items that electroplating is used on are ornaments, die cast models, trophies, clocks, keyrings, antiques, silverware, light fittings, electrical and scientific components. If you want to change the colour of a piece of your jewellery say to change a gold ring to silver then electroplating using rhodium will change the item to a silver colour and make it look like white gold. Alternatively any silver items can be gold plated. Many electroplating companies will use good quality 23 carat gold to give a beautiful deep yellow colour to the item.

If you have a treasured item that you want restoring then electroplating may be the perfect solution to restore it to its former glory. Jewellery items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches can all be transformed with electroplating and you can change the colour of your favourite items from time to time for a new look.

Companies that offer Electroplating services will be able to advice you on whether your item is suitable for electroplating and how much it is likely to cost. Electroplating an item can make a great present idea. If you know someone who has a treasured ornament or trophy for example that is looking dull and faded then you could surprise them by revamping it with electroplating.
