GERMANUS Gold Cigarette Cases, Entirely Made in Germany

Our GERMANUS cigarette cases are gold plated with real gold, 24 carat. The gilding carried out according to the manufacturer's specification has a fineness of 99.8%. The designation 24 carat corresponds to a fine gold content of 99.99%. However, coatings of this purity are very soft and sensitive, which is why in practice so-called hard gold electro-lytes with 0.5% alloys are used. In the electroplating industry, it is common to refer to such decorative coatings as 24 carats, since the color tone is quite accurate and the purity almost corresponds to the pure fine gold. Calculated results however only a value of 23.95 kt.

Question: Your silver cigarette cases cost more than your gold cigarette cases. Which alloy, gold or silver plated, is higher quality?

Answer: Both alloys are equal in their own right. Silver is much more expensive to produce and therefore more expensive. Because silver oxidizes, the cases need to be specially welded. In addition, the process of the alloy itself is more complex than the gilding. The commodity price hardly plays a role here. The difference is purely due to personnel costs and production costs.

You could also make a simpler silver alloy. We were not satisfied with these results.

Important: Silver must also be cleaned regularly later or fogged by oxidation in the air as it is known from silver cutlery. Gold is less complicated in that respect.
Qualitatively, both products are on equal terms.
