Our 18ct gold plated pieces are of the highest quality but also affordable. To make them, we start with a base of 925 Sterling Silver, then build up layers of 18ct gold using our advanced Micron Plating process. Our jewellers gently meld micro-layers of real gold onto a genuine sterling silver core. We steer clear of low-quality base metals (like brass and other alloys), so you know your piece is precious through and through. Gold plated is more affordable than solid when it comes to gold jewellery, as less pure gold goes into the piece - so you get the luxe look of solid gold for much less.
