Silver-Plated [sil-ver|pley-tid]

Silver-plated jewelry is created when a base metal goes through a series of processes and is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution which contains silver. When an electric current is applied, an electrochemical reaction occurs and a thin layer of silver is deposited onto the metal. This layer is much thinner than the coating of silver that covers silver-filled jewelry, which goes through a process of mechanically bonding and heating the silver to the base metal.
