VERMEIL GOLD PLATING Services (All Precious Metals Available ie. Silver, Rhodium, Platinum, Rose Gold, 14k, 18k, 24k Gold, Black Ruthenium)



THE OTHER GUY? 0.5 microns is all they are required to apply to legally call it gold plated.

PCR Jewelry Plating Service: 5.0microns thick or greater in addition to base plating and barrier layers beforehand and optional clear coating after "if" desired! That's over 10x times the thickness you'll get elsewhere!

This is not a basic electroplating kit service. Many are using hobbyist kits that are available off eBay and Amazon for chemical or basic pen electroplate plating. Expect approximately 10x times more Gold or other plating applied than any other service. These non-professional kits only apply up to 0.5 microns thick plating which "is" the industry standard while we apply 4.0 microns plus!

I'm a professional jeweler with over 20 years of experience and plate all kinds of things (not just rings or jewelry) so don't hesitate to ask if you need a quote for something crazy. I've been sent drones, car parts, electronics, concept car parts by auto manufacturers, belt buckles, trophies, just about everything you can imagine, and offer commercial (High Quality) services to jewelers across the USA. Offering such high-end service and craftsmanship includes often required base and barrier layers prior to the actual service as required and where needed. I charge NOTHING UPFRONT, and you are only invoiced "AFTER" the work is complete to guarantee 100% satisfaction.

PRICES WITHIN THIS AD ARE BASED ON AN AVERAGED SIZE 8mm WIDE RING or similar items like small pendants or very thin chains (send pictures and details to get a quote for larger items). 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 on most items (not guaranteed depending on how busy I am with other orders received prior to yours). When completed, your item(s) will be returned via USPS First Class or Priority Mail with courtesy Insurance for a maximum value of $200 (let me know if you require more insurance on your item so I may adjust your quote accordingly) and a Signature will be required when returned to make sure I do my due diligence in ensuring your prized item is returned to you to the best of my ability (so be sure to watch your tracking details as someone will need to be home to receive it or it'll need to be picked up at your local post office). If other arrangements are required, please advise.

Has your coin ring, jewelry or other become aged, lost its luster, precious metal plating, or antique patina? Maybe it was never Gold or had any precious metal but you would like it to. Regardless of the type of precious metal, (I don't only do gold - see options offered below) Send it to me and I'll replate it to bring back its beauty as best as possible. Just note that while I can remove many scratches and dings, not all can always be removed and plating alone will not fill in and cover up those issues (the plating is only going to be as smooth, flawless, and clear as the metal beneath it when finished and plating does not cover up oxidation, painted areas or items that have a clear coat or sealer. Please understand the differences between using real gold as I do and imitation gold or IP Gold from a factory, they aren't going to be the same so if you are confused by this, please ask before requesting the service be done but you will receive photos of your item and not charged till you approve how it looks). Feel free to ask to see before and after photos of other customer projects.

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 so don't hesitate to contact me if you have something unique you want to enquire about.

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 and "PAY NOTHING UPFRONT". Be sure to include your name, Etsy user name (if different), Phone Number (in case I need to call you when received), and full details along with any special requests. When shipping your item, be sure to get tracking information and insurance if needed just to avoid any USPS issues with delivery.

3. Protective Coatings! Exclusive to PCR Jewelry, you can request protective coating(s) which for some jewelry (not ideal on all jewelry so your item(s) will first need to be inspected). This isn't a free service so enquire on a quote if additional protection is desired.

Finally, it should go without saying but I've been questioned by some so this obvious information is publically listed. Plating is 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.

▶ BULK DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE (let me know if you are a reseller/manufacturer or just have a lot of pieces to do)
▶ Resizing Not Included in this service
▶ Precious Metal Plating does not remove pre-existing scratches, abrasions, or dings
▶ This is an offer for "Service" and not for a coin ring or other item other than what is ordered.
▶ Hypoallergenic Powder Coating (aka Hypo-Powder Coating guarantees it won't fade for a minimum of 3 years otherwise return it for a free refinishing (all shipping is the responsibility of the customer) limited to no more than one (1) refinishing, plating and reapplication of hyposealer again within the 3 year period. More details on Hypo-Powder Coating can be found here...
▶ Jewelers Clear Coating (JCC) first application is FREE and an individual 5ml use bottle and applicator is available for most items.
▶ 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 😊

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you ship anywhere in the World?

    Yes, excluding Russia and certain regions of Africa at this time.

    Custom and personalized orders

    I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).

    Care instructions

    While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.

    Sizing details

    Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
    If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍

    Wholesale availability

    If you are looking to buy rings, services or our precious metal plating in bulk, contact me before making your purchase, and let's discuss what you have. In many cases, I do offer discounted pricing to customers with bulk item requests.

    Do you give Military Discounts?

    Yes, anyone with an honorable discharge DD214 or active duty card as well as any first responders (firefighters, officers, medical field) that can provide proof (ie. an ID with the same name as the person purchasing the item) will receive 15% OFF the regular price. If an item is already on sale, I don't consolidate discounts and coupons so we would just look for the discount that gives you the largest savings and I thank you for your service!

    How to proceed with Gold Plating Services (or other precious metals)

    The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry). The very first thing is to contact me direct and provide a photo(s) preferably next to a dollar bill for size comparison. I don't charge my customers until "AFTER" the job is completed so PAY NOTHING UPFRONT! Simply contact me for my address, instructions and a quote.

    Do you plate anything other than rings?

    Yes, all the time! In fact, other than all kinds of costume jewelry, antiques, and more I'm contracted by many companies for all kinds of crazy things like drone parts, car parts, emblems, medallions, electronic parts, and so much more! Our Gold plating services extend far beyond just rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and pendants. Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating. Message me here and let's just chat a bit about what you have and get you a custom quote today. I typically answer in just a matter of a couple of hours in most cases.

    I worked with Michael again and he has done it again, he replated and redid my Second Lions Pin. This time, the back was damaged and he was able to scrub it clean, then replate it to make it look brand new. It’s very high quality and I love it. The item matched my description as it’s really 18K Gold. It has exceeded my expectations and I’m excited to work with Michael again in the future.

    Absolutely wonderful. Very professional yet personable and thorough. Seller was attentive in answering all my questions and chatted with me about the significance of my ring. Went above and beyond to put effort and time into plating my ring correctly, as there were some issues with it that required extra attention. Will be recommending their services to my friends, and will definitely return if I need any jewelry modifications in the future.

    I have a Lions International Pin that was tarnishing badly and I needed it replated. I found PatriotCoinRing here and I contacted Michael. Michael is the kindest, nicest, and most helpful seller I have ever talked to on Etsy. He answered all my questions in a professional manner and he is very patient. He helped me understand the gold vermeil process in great detail. He showed me update pictures constantly of the whole process, which was a very fast turnaround time of only 2 weeks. When my lapel pin was finished, it looked exactly how it did before and it matched my other pins exactly. It was good as new, like how it was before. Michael has met my full expectations and I am so happy to receive my pin brand new again. I highly recommend Michael for replating needs. I am looking forward to working with Michael in the future again.

    Great job,well done,i will be back.thankyou.cary

    My sterling silver ring to a 14k yellow gold! Beautiful! Michael was so kind and extremely fast! Always keeping me updated and turn around was very quick. Thanks again, Michael. I really appreciate it. It’s beautiful!
