Remove a plating?


#1

Hi Orchid Buddies, I have a light weight 14ky cable chain that has a
bright yellow high karat flash plating on it and unfortunately does
not match the simple pearl toggle I have made for it. Is there any
reasonable way to remove it or tone down that high yellow? I know it
will wear down but I would prefer to deliver it with a better match
right off. Can I tumble, magnetic or disc finisher, to remove it.
What is the prep to tumble chain so it does not tie itself in knots?

Thanks for the advice,

tlee

You have a few obtiions: 1. you could gold plate what you made and
hope to match the color of the chain; 2. polish off the plating on
the chain and hope you don’t get the chain caught in the buff; 3.
electro strip the chain and polish it, or; 4. Bomb the chiain with
cyanide and hydrogen peroxide. There is no way to win, it’s a pain
in the neck, good luck j dinola
