What is Silver Plating?

Silver plating has been a popular process since the 18th century. This method provides a cheaper version of household items that are typically made of solid silver-including cutlery, equipment and candlesticks. The earliest form of silver plating was called Sheffield Plate. This process used thin sheets of silver and fused them to a layer or core of a base metal. In regards to electronics, silver can be used for plating copper-its electrical resistance is lower. Silver plating should be used for parts and valuables exposed to high humidity. This also goes for caring for your silver plated valuables as well. When the silver layer is porous or has cracks, the underlying copper will corrode rapidly.

Silver plating is a much more affordable way to preserve your valuables and a process that when completed needs care and attention as all of your possessions deserve.
