  • Protecting gold plating in jewelry?

    I'm an independent jewelry designer in NYC used to working with gold/silver. I've now created a line of costume jewelry in brass and would like to have them gold plated but have been quoted cost prohibitive prices for "micron plating". What I understand is called "flash plating" is at my price point (~$5-10 per piece) but doesn't last long.

    Is there a coating I can apply that will extend the life of the gold plating (to at least 1 year but hopefully more) while maintaining a matte finish?

    Hopefully either something I can apply myself (as a layman...) or can be inexpensively be done by a professional in the NYC area?

    Thanks and regards,
