How to plate Purple Gold?
(-----) January 23, 2008
Hello, I am working on plating a purple gold similar to purple gold alloy. I would like to know if any one has any work done in this area and wondered if they would share. I am currently pursuing a Cobalt solution but am having trouble maintaining good adhesion of the plated material. I have shied away from Cn due to our environmental/cost boundaries.Gus Thunberg

You can use a little sodium copper cyanide and sodium silver cyanide this will work together with sodium gold cyanide in the solution. The silver will show a green color and copper a red tone and together with gold you get a purple or pink color because of how much you add of it into the gold solution.
