Why would anyone use electrocoat over silver?

Q. I have heard that some fine silver jewelers use electrocoat. Why would anyone use electrocoat over silver?—M.P.

A. Some jewelry manufacturers use clear electrocoats over sterling silver components such as wedding bands and rings to preserve them during storage. The clear electrocoat layer is very thin as its only objective is preservation against scratches and light dulling because of oxidation.
