Gold-Filled VS Gold-Plated

  • Which is better gold plated or gold filled?
Gold filled jewelry is a typically a better alternative to gold plated jewelry. It won't tarnish and it's much more durable than gold plated jewelry. However, after about 2-5 years, you can begin to see some slight fading of the color.
  • Can I shower with gold-filled jewelry?        
Gold-Plated    VS     Gold-Filled

Gold Filled: You are fine to shower in gold-filled jewelry, get it wet, wear it for life! It's better to remove it before entering in salt water or chlorine. If it's in contact with basic lotions, it is fine, but remove it when putting on anything strong- retinol, peels, glycolic acid etc.


  • Is Gold Filled real gold?

To be very clear, Gold Filled is not the same as 'real gold' or Solid Gold. It is a fraction of the cost of Solid Gold and is made by bonding a layer of gold to a base metal to give it the appearance of gold. ... Over time, the gold layer of Gold Filled jewelry wears away, exposing the base metal underneath


  • How long will gold filled jewelry last?
Most high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold, and gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last up to 5 years though the layer of gold will eventually wear off exposing the metal underneath.
