What is Gold Filled Jewellery?

Gold filled jewellery uses a carat gold overlay which is then bonded to a base metal, normally brass, inner core. This is a permanent bond and the gold won't flake, peel or fall out. 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.

What is the Difference Between Gold Filled and Gold Plated Jewellery?

Gold filled and gold plated jewellery have many differentiating factors. Gold filled uses a mechanical process to bond a layer of gold to a brass base metal using heat and pressure. Electroplating, used in gold plated pieces, is a very thin layer of gold which may tarnish quickly. Gold filled jewellery has inherent value in 5% of its weight being 14ct gold. The amount of gold in gold plated jewellery is insignificant and has little value.

What are the Benefits of Gold Filled Jewellery?

Gold-filled items are perfect if you’re looking for material that is higher quality than gold-plated, but an affordable alternative to solid gold. Unlike gold-plated, gold-filled can last a lifetime if taken care of and isn’t affected by water or hot weather. It is also tarnish-free under normal conditions.
