Can polished nickel be replated with bronze?
donia1January 21, 2013
I purchased an Ochre chandelier (60 cm drizzle) in polished nickel. I would like to see if the metal can be replated to bronze? Possible?

Everything's possible for a certain price, but it might be cheaper to buy something else in the finish you want.

Please consider this before you change the finish. The polished nickle finish adds to the reflectivity and clarity of the crystal. The nickle in this case is integral to the crystal effect and should not be looked at in the same way you would a backplate or canopy. If you bronze the metal, you will add a yellow reflection that you may find diminishes the "glow" that attracted you in the first place.

Polished nickle seems to really becoming the "in" thing now and I agree with Scott Design.

Thank you all for your comments. I'm conflicted but I agree with AngryRedHEad that I should move on and buy something else. Hello Ebay.
