Gold-filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal.
Gold-filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating.
Gold-filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant.
It does not flake off, rub off or turn colours.
Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth or polish gently with a jewellery polishing cloth.
Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold-filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewellery.
Gold-filled jewellery is an economical alternative to solid gold!
Gold-filled items are regulated by the US government.
These products are therefore so much better then gold-plated which is not regulated.
Gold-filled jewellery is made from solid gold and filled with other alloys such as rhodium (a member of the platinum family), brass, and sterling silver.
Gold-filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold.
Everything you can see and touch is pure gold.
In the jewellery industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20 by weight of the total product.
Gold-filled items are generally considered lifetime products, and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will in electroplated products.
Gold-filled jewellery is often called the wave of the future because it offers all the same characteristics as solid gold such as strength, durability and beauty but at a fraction of the cost!
