✎ What’s the difference between gold PVD coating and gold plating?
Physical Vapor Deposition, or PVD, is a vacuum coating process that produces a brilliant decorative and functional finish. PVD utilizes a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and regular wear than gold plating. Gold PVD coatings can be 10 times thicker than standard gold plating.
