Our 24kt Gold Process:
We take a hand picked semi precious stone and hand paint the surface with a base metal paint. Once the natural surface is coated with the metal we are able to electro-form 24kt gold onto the unique stones. The result is a beautiful work of art that is preserved in pure 24kt gold. Our Gold Overlay Chains are manufactured to produce the finest alternative to solid 14kt jewelry and "wears just like a karat".
Our Gold Overlay Chains are produced by applying an average of 30 to 40 mils of 24kt gold onto the surface of our high quality brass based chain, charms and components utilizing an advanced acid gold Electro-Depositing process. Unlike basic decorative (cyanide) gold electroplated costume jewelry, Gold Overlay jewelry may be worn all the time. It has on average 5-7 times the thickness of most costume jewelry. Acid gold is a harder gold plating formula that was pioneered by the electronics industry which produces a durable finish. Unlike basic decorative gold electroplated jewelry, the jewelry that is finished with an acid gold application has excellent long term wearing qualities.
