What's the difference between gold plated & gold filled?
When deciding on gold jewelry a lot of terms come up. The most popular are Solid Gold, Gold Filled, and Gold Plated. It is important to know the differences between Gold Filled jewelry and Gold Plated jewelry when making your choice. 14k gold is of course an exquisite piece of jewelry. Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to 14k gold. Gold plating or vermeil is the lower level and these items tend to tarnish and can often times turn the skin green. Picky Me never use anything less the gold-fill or 14k gold.
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 colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to 14k gold.
