Is Plated Gold Real Gold?

Is Plated Gold Real Gold?

No, plated gold is not even close to real gold. It’s used with a base metal with a gold electro-process on top of the material. Usually, the metal underneath is copper, brass, or stainless steel, and like paint, it usually wears off in time, usually between 6 months to 12 months.
