What is a gold-plated jewel?

This is a particularly fine reproduction of real gold. From a technical point of view, it is a metal that will be directly covered by a layer of gold. The result is a jewel with excellent value for money, but particularly successful aesthetically. In order for the gold-plated name to be used on jewelry in France, it is necessary to use a brass that will be covered by an electrolysis process with a 16-carat gold layer with a minimum thickness of three microns. It is also possible to use gold with other mixture to get a very particular nice hue like rose gold plated.
