How long can gold plated jewelry last?

The gold plated jewelry usually doesn't last long and will tarnish within 12 months, Usually using 1 micron gold plating. We want our jewelry to last longer, for at least 3 years wearing it everyday.

Similarly, is electroplated gold real gold?

Most solid gold jewelry is 14k, 12k, 10k, or 9k. (Although electroplated gold usually has little intrinsic value because it is so thin, the karat of the plating is apparently sometimes specified because it can effect the tarnish resistance, color, or engineering properties).

Is gold tone real gold?

Definition. Gold tone jewelry refers to any piece that has no measurable gold content, but has a finish that appears to be gold. In all cases, gold tone or plated jewelry has so little gold that the gold content cannot be measured in karats—any gold or gold color is merely cosmetic.
