GOLD-PLATED VS. GOLD-FILLED

Gold-plate is created using an electro-chemical process that places a thin molecule of gold on copper, brass, or some other base metal.  The gold color will eventually wear off as it comes in contact with the wearer's skin salts or the pollutants in the air.

Gold-filled is created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of real gold to a copper, brass, or some other base metal.  Our gold-filled coin bezels and gold-filled chains are stamped 1/20 14K GF or 1/20 12K GF.  This means that the piece is 1/20th by weight 14 karat gold or 1/20th by weight 12 karat gold. 

BUYER BEWARE:  If a listing says "Gold-plate/Gold-filled" something is wrong!  The jewelry in question can not be both; it is either one or the other!  Ask the seller if the piece is stamped Gold-filled.  If the jewelry is truly 12K or 14K Gold-filled, it will be stamped on the clasp.

Gold-filled jewelry lasts for many, many years and is a much more durable product than gold-plate.  However, gold-plate is much less expensive.  You just have to replace it more often. 

Gold-filled jewelry is economical and lets you enjoy the rich look of gold at a fraction of the cost of solid gold!

If you have any questions, please email us at midsouth@hughes.net  or call 662.534.3897.

Thanks for looking!
