Gold Filled

Gold Filled

Overlaid with at least 5% total gold weight permanently applied by heat and pressure bonding to a metal alloy base. The thickness and higher content of gold on the surface layer, as well as the bonding method, makes it more durable and better suited for longer wear than standard Gold-Plating.
 

Gold Plated

Gold Plated

A process whereby a thin molecule of gold layering is applied by electroplating to a metal alloy or other material base. Although the surface coating is not as durable or permanent as Gold-Filled, and has a tendency to wear off in time, it provides an economical alternative to genuine gold and gold-filled beads.
