Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)

Physical Vapor Deposition, or PVD, is a vacuum coating process that produces a decorative and durable finish. PVD utilizes a titanium nitride that provides a hard coating that is durable and designed to last. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion and regular wear than gold plated designs.

The benefits of PVD coatings are many including protection from everyday abuse. Traditional electroplating of jewelry requires a clear coat that degrades with time and can easily tarnish or corrode. PVD is four times harder than chrome which makes it corrosion and scratch-resistant.

Benefits of Physical Vapor Deposition technology:

  • Scratch Resistant
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Decorative Finish High in Hardness
  • Low Maintenance
  • Environmentally Friendly Process
