Oscar Graves 14ct Gold Plating on Sterling Silver
Our Oscar Graves14ct gold plated pieces are the answer to the person who seeks that precious gold look without the solid gold expense.
Oscar Graves gold plating is a layer 14ct gold (either 14ct rose coloured or 14ct yellow coloured gold) applied over the exterior of some our sterling silver pieces. Gold plating will gradually wear off the piece which in turn will expose the more natural sterling silver finish beneath.
The best way to take care of a 14ct gold plated piece is to use a lint-free cloth to gently polish the metal and to also clean any dirt from the surface. We do not recommend using a liquid solution to clean plated jewellery, as to do so, may erase the plating.
