GOLD PLATING

GOLD PLATING
FEBRUARY 25, 2015 by GARY AT CHUPI

Here at Chupi, we know how important it is that your jewellery has that eye catching sparkle, and to help maintain this we offer a gold plating service. We all love that feeling of receiving a brand new piece, and how special it can feel when fresh out of the box. However, slowly over time, jewellery can become worn and lose its distinctive shine, especially if worn on a daily basis.

The replating process can take up to 3 weeks. During this time your piece will be repolished and replated in a thick layer of 18k gold. We use a heavy gold plating, (often referred to as HGP) consisting of 3-4 microns of gold. Each micron should last for up to a year of optimal wear.

If you feel your piece has lost its sparkle, why not send it to us for replating and we can restore it back to its original new look? We offer this service for free if your piece was purchased within the last year. For older pieces a small fee of €10 will apply. Also, if you would like to restore the sparkle to your silver jewellery, we will repolish your piece for free! Just get in touch with us at care@chupi.ie
