Smith & Warren Finishes

Nickel Electroplate The most economical silver tone finish, a hard layer of nickel electroplate provides a high degree of durability without a high price, but may lose some luster with age.


Rhodium Electroplate is a bright and brilliant silver tone finish that will not tarnish; a great combination of shine and durability.

Gold ElectroplatePlate is a pure 24K gold electroplated finish applied over a nickel base providing a gold finish that is tarnish-resistant, but may show some wear over time.

Sil-Ray™ is a heavy silver tone with electroplated layers combined with an extremely hard protective coating producing a brilliant finish that will stand the test of time.

Gol-Ray™ is the most durable gold finish, combining heavy electroplated layers of 24K gold with an extremely hard protective clear coat, the result is a gold finish that outshines the competition.

Two-Tone is the best of both worlds, Gol-Ray™ and Sil-Ray™ combine to form a two tone finish that is bright, durable and consistent.


Cote D’Or™ is the ultimate fine gold finish, our thickest layer of 24K gold plate and our ultra durable clear coat, provides a presentation quality finish; an excellent choice for awards, gifts and display badges.

Black is available on any badge. Just choose the gold finish and specify that you would like the Black Finish in the comments section.
