I’m considering E-coating to prevent sterling silver and plated jewelry from tarnishing. I understand that its life depends on how jewelry is cared, but if an e-coated necklace is worn daily without too much abuse, how many months/years does the coating typically last before it starts tarnishing? What is your experience?
I also would like to know:
- Whether E-coating coats a fine (link size under 2mm) chain well. I currently use an anti-tarnish dipping solution, but it makes a treated chain stiff.
- Whether or not I can E-coat multiple pieces of components at a time. Or if it’s possible to coat finished jewelry that consists of several charms, jump rings, and a chain. I currently need to clean and dip components one by one, and it takes too much time.
Thank you very much.
