You have probably seen many fairy tale movies where palaces are built of gold, and the princes and princesses are also adorned with gold.
These days, it is now very common to see items ranging from furniture to cars being covered in gold. That is gold plating.
Gold plating is a very common practice, thanks to an increased interest in jewellery. Undeniably, the most popular and most appreciated form of jewellery is gold.
Prized for its beauty and versatility, gold is the classic setting for most jewellery. It is also the most malleable of all metals — so soft that it cannot be used often for jewellery in its purest form as heat, pressure or extreme weather conditions will reshape it.
