Recently Gold Rush Plating restored a sun clock to it original glory. The clock had lost most of its original gold and was very tarnished.
Firstly we machined polished the ‘Rays’ back to base metal and the proceeded to nickel plate them. Once this was complete it was straight to the gold plating tanks to give a beautiful and rich 24k gold plate finish.
Last week Gold Rush Plating was asked to help out in a PR video for Marmite.
We were asked to gold plate a jar of Marmite for an up-coming promotion.
The jar was copper plated, then silver plated and finally gold plated.
Good news, we can now gold plate the Apple Watch.

We have had lots of jewellery as usual, but a lot of new commercial and engineering work as well.
The new red and green gold has been selling well and of course are new “thick coat silver” is going down a storm.
Gold plating and Silver Plating have kept us super busy as always, but Rose Gold plating and Nickel plating have been high on the orders lately.
