I were wondering how the workflow looks when you want to have stones in goldplated jewelry, or actually in plated jewelry in general.
Haven’t really tried to play around with plating with stones myself yet, since I cant seem to find much on the subject.
Should the stones be set before or after plating?
I would assume that not all stones can handle electro cleaning & plating processes…
However i also find it hard to think that it’s a good idea to set stones into already plated pieces?
Soo what’s the proper way around it?
