Jewelry Information & Care

Question: What is the difference between antique gold/silver, gold/silver plated and gold/silver tone items.

Answer: Antique gold/silver items are plated and have a special blackening technique. This finish is used to highlight the patterns to display it's beautiful details. The color is dull.

Gold plated items have a yellow color that looks closer to gold. It is made of alloy plating with a thin layer of gold. If you prefer bright gold colors, you could consider gold plated which is brighter than the antique gold and gold tone items.

Silver plated items are plated with a layer of real silver, so it looks the same as sterling silver, except no 925 hallmark. These are a shiny silver color.

Gold tone items are gold toned in color, but they are less shiny than gold plated. It is duller than gold plated, but it looks brighter than antique gold.
