I am a jewelry manufacturer. I understand Europe has more restrictions as to the plating on jewelry to be nickel free. These regulations will soon be in America. The problem is that if you remove one of the steps which is nickel plating, the jewelry does keep its plating as long as with the nickel plating! Any suggestions?

Hi, Patrick. You don't leave a layer out, you replace the nickel plating with cobalt plating or, better yet, white bronze plating (an alloy of zinc, copper, and tin). Good luck.
