Good day, been out for a while but back and looking for some advise.. I made a ring for a friend from Sterling silver and always .... always getting firestains. I am tired from spending hours to get rid of those by polishing so my questions are : would silver plating help as last solution and also to hide small imperfections?? any tricks to keep in mind like thickness etc? any different methods or only method is normally in use? Sorry asking maybe silly stuff but have not done it yet, plus I 'd love to ask any companies maybe some can recommend who does it by post.?
