About Living Gold
Who We Are
Living Gold Co. is a well-established manufacturer that has been around for more than 25 years (since 1991). We are situated in Azusa, CA, just 30 miles NE of Downtown Los Angeles.
Each year, we produce over 100,000 gold and platinum roses, as well as other unique items. We specialize in non-conductive electroplating for organic items such as leaves, flowers and fruits plated in copper, nickel, 24k gold, rose gold, silver and platinum.
As the largest and oldest manufacturer of gold & platinum roses in the world, we are known for our exceptional craftsmanship and plating. We have a well-trained team of highly skilled artisans and technicians, and we are well-equipped with unique technology and advanced machinery.
Living Gold Co. is the industry leader in quality and innovation, and we are constantly creating new products that no one in the world can replicate, both in form and quality.
What We Offer
We offer more than 300 different organic items that are electroplated in precious metals. These include real leaves, nuts & shells that are turned into ornaments and jewelry (earrings, pendants, pins, bracelets).
We also make custom-made novelty items such as sports balls, cigars and baby shoes that can be treasured as lifelong keepsakes.
Two of our newest items are the Asiatic Lilies and Calla Lilies, which are popular for weddings and anniversaries. They are currently in limited production due to their seasonal growth.
Our most popular products, available online and in local Jewelry/Specialty Stores, are the "Gold Roses," "Platinum Roses," and "Birth Color Roses." They are widely distributed worldwide and have been a part of our proud American culture since the early '90s.
How We Make It
Our gold and platinum roses are made of real roses that are shipped to us directly from the nursery. We have a special worker whose sole job is to take care of the fresh roses and watch for the exact time when they bloom.
Once the roses are open and at the peak of their beauty, they are immediately selected, sized and formed. Then, they are electroplated with our own secret-blended formula.
The roses are plated in layers of copper and nickel and re-formed and repaired again and again before the final finish of 24k Gold, Silver, Platinum or Rose Gold.
Each piece, which is completely handmade, undergoes strict quality control and takes 3 to 6 months and over 50 steps to complete.
After the rose is completed, it will last forever for your lifetime enjoyment. Each Living Gold rose is preserved and transformed into beautiful piece of art that can be treasured by all.
