Oxidation of sterling silver i the store

How much faster does sterling silver jewelry oxidize compared to depleted gilded jewelry?
Will depletion gilding significantly increase the quality of my silver jewelry?

I don’t want to switch to argentium silver at the moment and my studio is too small for silver plating equipment.

I usually grind and polish my jewelry and I don’t have big problems with jewelry in the store oxidizing, but a colleague advises me to gilding them.

I always thought that this process is time-consuming but then got the tip to tumble the jewelry after annealing, which would simplify the work.

Thanks
