Electroplating refers to the process of coating the surface of a conducting material with another metal. Electroplating is usually used to cover a less expensive metal with a more expensive metal, or to cover a corrosive metal with a less corrosive or noncorrosive metal.
Items like tablewares can be made in a less expensive metal such as copper and then plated with silver, providing the look of a silver item at a fraction of the cost of a solid silver item.
