HOW TO GOLD MY JEWEL ?

Send us by e-mail by clicking on the button below, a photo of your jewel with its description : dimensions, material, weight (if possible). We will send you a customized estimate with all the information...

Please note that jewellery containing stones can only be plated if they are real stones (otherwise the gilding will cover the whole jewel).
Each plating is unique, since it depends on many variables, original materials, composition, condition of the jewel, origin...
We do not restore jewels, only plating. If the jewel is damaged, the result of the galvanization is not guaranteed.
The galvanisation of stainless steel requires a special technique that we do not offer.

WHAT ARE THE PRICES?

The price of galvanizing depends on the surface of the jewel. The minimum price is 35€ + shipping costs (depending on the type of delivery you choose).
Prices for large pieces of jewelry will be communicated on a case by case basis.

The quality of the galvanisation offered is: 24 carats gold, 3 microns (gold-plated).

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF GOLDING JEWELRY?

The gilding process is called Galvanisation.
It consists of covering metals with a layer of gold and thus transforming silver or brass jewelry into gold-plated jewelry...

Galvanisation uses the electrolysis method. It involves immersing the jewelry in a gold bath, connected to an electric current. Thanks to this continuous electric current, the gold particles are deposited on the metal over the course of minutes...

Elsa shows you, in video, the backstage of this process, rarely opened to individuals:
