About Gold-filled Jewellery
Most of our classic collections of our fashion jewellery range are made with gold-filled metal materials instead of carat gold for a more affordable but still durable and long-lasting effect.
14k gold-filled metal has the same appearances as 14k solid gold. It is more tarnish-resistant and has a thicker coating than gold plated materials. In most cases, individuals who are sensitive to metals won't have an allergic reaction to gold-filled materials.
What's Gold-filled jewellery?
Gold-filled jewelry is jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight) mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal.
Most high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold, and gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last 10 to 30 years though the layer of gold will eventually wear off exposing the metal underneath. The layer of gold on gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than that produced by gold electroplate.
