Let me give you a quick run down on our plating finishes at http://www.bsueboutiques.com
Our focus is on antique finishes, so we don't have alot of goldplated and silverplated products. I do have alot of OX finishes such as
brass ox or brox
pewter ox or pwox
copper ox or copox
silver ox or silox
OX means 'oxidized'. So brass ox is an antiqued brass plate, and so forth. Our ox finishes are deep and rich because we have a black antique layer added with the plating, to bring out detail. The look is striking.
Also, our ox finishes are permanent. You don't have to seal them or do anything to them. They are ready to go. Our silver ox finish has a lacquer coat, as well.
Gunmetal is the color of hematite, deep charcoal grey-black, glossy, pretty. This finish is more brittle than the ox finishes and does not manipulate as well. We carry all the findings to go with our gunmetal finish at http://www.bsueboutiques.com
Russian goldplate is made like the wonderful finish you find in vintage Miriam Haskell jewelry, and our Russian goldplate is so close to that old finish that you can hardly tell the difference. It has the glow of Victorian rolled gold. Our Russian goldplate actually has a drop of real gold in the finish and the antique applied brings out detail. If you are in the market for Russian goldplated findings, we've got the best finish out there!
You'll find unplated stampings and filigree at http://www.bsueboutiques.com also! These are great if you like the look of plain brass. It can be shined, polished, antiqued with paints, with tripoli on a buffer, or colorized with chemical agents (aged).
