Gold-Filled and Gold Plated:
Gold- Filled is also known as ‘rolled gold’ or ‘gold bonded’, and is created by mechanically bonding a layer of gold to a base metal. Gold filled has a distinct layer of gold. The gold is then bonded to the surface of the base metal using heat and pressure. This is a permanent bond so the gold won’t flake, peel or fall off.
By law, the total weight of a gold filled item must contain 5% (or 1/20) of gold. For comparison, the total amount of gold a gold plated item usually has is under 0.05% of the overall weight of the product.
Gold filled items are perfect if you’re looking for a material that is higher quality and better wearing than gold plated, but an affordable alternative to solid gold. Unlike gold plated, gold filled can last a lifetime if taken care of properly, and isn’t affected by water or hot weather. It is also tarnish-free under normal conditions.
