As well as our usual polished metal finishing services we also offer a brushed metal finish. Brushed finishing is extremely popular on a wide range of items, especially household fittings such as showers and bath taps as well as jewellery items.
Though, nickel, yellow gold and rose gold are the most popular brushed finishing services we provide we can also apply it to copper, brass, silver and platinum.
The example below shows part of a new set of bathroom and shower fittings in polished chrome plate. The chrome was first electrochemically stripped off before the brushed gold finish could be applied.
For more examples please see the images in our gallery.
For more information on having something brush finished please do get in touch through our contact form for friendly advice or a quotation.

Rose gold, also described as red or pink gold, is a gold and copper alloy that is made by adding copper to yellow gold.
Rose gold plating has become very popular in recent years and although used mostly for jewellery items such as rings, bracelets and necklaces we find ourselves regularly applying a rose gold finish to household taps and shower fittings as well as many other items including custom scooter and show car/bike parts.
Our rose gold is 18ct which has a 75% gold content. This is long lasting and will not tarnish leaving your jewellery and any other items you have electro plated in our rose gold looking beautiful and lustrous for a very long time.
Various finishes can be applied such as; polished, satin, matt and brushed rose gold, subject to the item being suitable for gold plating.
Our electroplating services also include; yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, palladium, rhodium, platinum, silver, nickel and chrome.
For more information on our rose gold plating service please get in touch through our contact form for friendly advice or a quotation.

Why buy a solid gold Apple watch that technology-wise will be out of date and disposable in just a couple of years? To have your Apple watch gold plated works out at a little over 23 pence a day over two years of ownership for the gold plating alone. This makes ownership of a gold Apple watch affordable for everyone.
We can gold plate your stainless steel Apple watch in 18 carat or 24 carat yellow gold as in the images below. For something a little more luxurious we can also platinum plate your Apple watch.

We are often asked by musicians and brass wind retailers and repairers if we can repair the silver plating or gold plating on musical instruments such as the Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, Clarinet and Saxophones, but to name a few.
We can replate the whole instrument but it is often much more practical and cost effective to simply repair the offending part as in the images below of a silver plated brass Tuba we recently repaired:
The repair is not noticeable to the naked eye and the customer was highly delighted with the work we carried out on his Tuba.
Our electroplating services include; silver, yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and platinum. For a complete list of all our gold plating and silver electroplating services and to find out what we can do for you as a musician or musical instrument retailer or repairer please contact us through our contact form for advice or a quotation.
