Rhodium Plating a Gold Piece

We apply rhodium plating on gold jewelry to change its color to white. Please bear in mind that as the rhodium plating begins to wear off, the yellow color that gold jewelry originally has start to bleed through although we apply ideal plating process.

Rhodium Plating a Sterling Silver Piece

Sterling silver does not require rhodium plating to acquire white color since it’s already a white metal; however, sterling silver tends to tarnish over time. Rhodium Plating Silver Jewelry will prevent this and ensure that the jewelry remains tarnish free for a long period of time and the jewelry is highly lustrous.

As the plating wears off over time, the white color of the sterling silver come through, but it wont be visible like gold.

Gold Plating

Gold plating is a process where a layer of gold is bonded onto a base metal. We apply 2 types of plating process in Kairos Jewelry,Rhodium and Gold Plating. Gold Plating is real gold and the purity of the gold we are using in plating process ranges just like solid gold. The lowest purity we are using is 14K and the highest is 18K gold. When it comes to gold plating process, the essential difference between 14K and 18K isthe color they produce rather than the value.We use higher purity of gold compared to 14K plating in 18K Gold Plating process; however, the cost does not change much regardless of the purity levels. In Rose Gold Plating process, 925 Sterling Silver is coated with a layer of rose gold through a chemical process. There are various karats of rose gold plated jewelry, in Kairos Jewelry 18 Karats of rose gold plating is applied which we believe gives the best look. Hamilton Gold is brass that is toned with gold, we coat Sterling Silver with this mixture in order to get this pleasant look.

Micron Gold Plating

We apply 1 micron gold plating to our jewelry. Micron gold plating is the process of implementing a fine layer of micron sized particles to a base metal (925 Sterling Silver) using an electrochemical process. The term refers to one micron thick and specifies the thickness of the coating.
