Answer

Gold plating is a thin layer of real gold over some other metal. One only has to pay Zakaat on the actual gold content. Consult with a jeweler to determine the actual gold content.

Generally, in gold plating, the actual gold content is minimal. Zakaat has to be paid on all gold and silver jewellery, whether it is worn or put away. The Ahaadith mention that Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) saw some women wearing gold jewellery and he commanded them to pay Zakaat. (Dars Tirmidhi vol.2 pg.452)
