24k gold plating

Step 1: Prepare

We do our gold plating by a process called electroplating and we use the rack system to do every little piece. There are a few options when gold plating but we find this to be the best way for a durable and usable coating. The first step you will need to do is to disassemble every piece and prepare for dipping.
