What is the difference between the badge finishes?

Nickel Electroplate Standard Finish 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 Standard Finish Rhodium Electroplate: A bright and brilliant silver tone finish that will not tarnish; a great combination of shine and durability.
Gold Electroplate Standard Finish Gold Electroplate: A pure 24K gold electroplated finish applied over a nickel base provides a gold finish that is tarnish-resistant, but may show some wear over time.
Two-Tone Deluxe Finish Two-Tone*: The best of both worlds, Gol-Ray™ and Sil-Ray™ combine to form a two tone finish that is bright, durable and consistent.
Sil-Ray Deluxe Finish Sil-Ray™*: Heavy silver tone electroplated layers combined with our extremely hard protective coating produce a brilliant finish that will stand the test of time.
Gol-Ray Deluxe Finish Gol-Ray™*: 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.
Cote D'Or Deluxe Finish Cote D’Or™*: 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 Nickel Finish Black Nickel: A metallic black finish that is durable and distinctive. This unique finish is popular when looking for a subdued appearance.
