Topics: Gold-Dipped Versus Gold-Plated

Q.
Is there any difference between gold-dipped and gold-plated or is it just a new way to market gold plate?
- Carole
A.
"Gold-plated" items have an industry standard of 0.15 to 0.25 mils thickness of gold which is plated to the surface of the base metal. "Gold-dipped" items may or may not meet that industry standard.
