PRECIOUS METAL PLATING Services (New Plating or Refinish of a faded piece of jewelry) Make your Jewelry New Again!


PRICES WITHIN THIS AD ARE BASED ON AN AVERAGED SIZE 8mm WIDE RING. Message me if you have something else for an accurate quote and read all the information below as they will probably answer all your questions. Typical 2-3 Day Turn Around Time.

Has your coin ring become aged, lost it's luster, precious metal plating or antique patina? Send it to me and I'll refinish it to look as good as new again. For those wondering if I plate more than just rings, "YES I DO" but prices will differ if it requires more precious metal and/or labor than a normal 8mm band. I get all kinds of items from people though from drones to concept car parts so don't hesitate to contact me if you have something unique you want to enquire about.

Also note that due to government issues between the USA and China right now, Rhodium has skyrocketed through the rough so don't be sticker shocked when you see those prices. I can't wait till the day Rhodium drops below gold again but for now it's a very expensive solution to obtain "but" I do have it and it still can be done.

Here’s how to get started...

1. Contact me here first along with a picture of your item to be plated, length, width and general description especially the type of metal it's going on. Yes, gems are okay if they are mounted on your item as they won't be disturbed.

2. If we come to an agreement on what service you'll need, mail your ring/item to me at the address below. Be sure to include your legal name and full details along with any special requests and if you originally bought the ring from me, kindly provide your ETSY user name as well so I can look up your account. When shipping your ring, be sure to get tracking information and insurance if needed just to avoid any USPS issues with delivery.

3. Protective Coatings! You can request no protective coating(s) which for some jewelry is the only option (not all items do well with it like some very thin necklaces the coating can make the chain somewhat stiff feeling). On the other hand, all plating's regardless of who you get it from are never really permanent, it's a micron thin plating over the surface of another metal so using a protective coating "if" your item can take it is the best way to make it last and help prevent oxidation much longer than normal but common sense care should always be taken of any item, jewelry, or other if you want it to last. Don't expect to go digging in the garden and scratching it against abrasive objects and for it to be impervious to fading or removal. Also, hand sanitizers can soften and remove protectants so be aware of that. The only thing better than the Jewelers Clear Coat is a Transparent (which should be reapplied monthly) is Hypoallergenic Powder Coating (Hypo-Powder Coating) that puts a hardened shell on your band and comes with a 3 year re-application guarantee (no reapplications unlike JCC is needed). Questions? Just ask.

▶ Buyer to pay for shipping the item to us but return shipping will be FREE of charge unless you decide to back out of the service and not pay to have it done.
▶ Some items may need more than just a plating but base coats and/or barrier layers of precious metal before the final precious metal coat of your choice. Your jewelry/item is only as bright and clean as the metal beneath it so if it's scratched or discolored, it's going to show through if the surface can't be completely cleaned or replated with base coatings. If you feel a piece in really bad shape, send me a photo and we can discuss what needs to be done to make it look new again. There is no guarantee as to the longevity or durability of the plating. I simply can't know how my customers will take care of their items or abuse them and precious metal plating is simply a micron thin surface coating of precious soft metal that can and will scratch or fade with time in many cases just as to the reason you are probably contacting me now if you are having something replated.
▶ I've never had anything returned to me and thus far a 100% customer satisfaction of my services however by ordering this service you agree that if in the event I agree to a refund or worse a court case or arbitration by anyone is performed, there will be no refund greater than what was originally charged. There is no guarantee for damage to the item(s) whether the said damage occurs before in a test trial, attempt to plate or after plating occurs. PCR will not be responsible for anything greater than the cost of the service and any refund will be at the discretion of PCR Jewelry (aka Patriot Coin Rings), Michael Baker, employee or affiliate. Again, with this being said, I've not yet ever had anyone less than 5 Star Excited about the results of my work as can be read in the reviews.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here and I hope this service satisfactorily takes care of your issue 😊

Excellent work!!! Very personal service from a vendor who truly cares about the customer. Has gone above and beyond all expectations.

Definitely someone who is dedicated to their craft. Although platings and adding a hoop brought many obstacles to Michael , he still pulled through and delivered the finished pendant.

I cannot say enough good things about Michael and his shop. I sent a bracelet I received from my wedding to have refinished in gold and it looks beautiful. Not to mention Michael was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I accidentally sent the wrong jewelry at first and he was so helpful helping me ship it back and swap it out - truly a 5 star experience!

Michael did a beautiful job replating my pendant from sterling silver to rose gold. He was prompt, professional, and easy to work with. I highly recommend his services.
