Gold-Filled vs. Gold-Plated Jewellery: What Sets Them Apart?

20 December 2023

As you step into a jeweller's store, the sparkle of gold jewellery can steal your gaze. But how do you know if it's real or just an imitation? It can be challenging to see what's underneath. However, whether you wish to buy physical silver online or gold jewellery, you must understand what you are paying for. 

What is Gold-filled Jewellery?

While searching online for jewellery, you might find a term like gold-filled, making you think that the entire product is made of gold. However, the reality is that the jewellery piece is made using two layers of gold mixed with some other metal like brass or copper. If we talk about the making of gold-filled jewellery, 12 to 14 Karat gold is chemically bonded with another metal. This is done by using high-power machinery. On the other hand, gold-plated jewellery is quite different in composition and the process of making.

What is Gold-Plated Jewellery?

Gold-plated jewellery has an outer layer of gold around another metal. It is like coating metals like silver or brass with gold. These jewellery pieces are more susceptible to tarnishing and contain gold in lesser amounts than gold-filled jewellery. Making this jewellery piece is much easier than its counterpart, allowing space for creativity in the designs. 

Difference in Appearance

The difference in the appearance of gold-plated and gold-filled jewellery can only be observed with a closer look. At first glance, they may look similar, but as you keenly observe, you can see subtle differences. For example, gold-plated jewellery is usually far more flexible due to the presence of a microscopic layer of gold. When it comes to sturdiness, gold-filled jewellery easily beats its counterpart. Also, you can see a stamp 'GF' on gold-filled jewellery with a magnifying glass. 

Differences in Maintenance and Care

Caring for these baubles involves keeping them away from water and harsh chemicals. But gold-plated jewellery needs extra care due to its fragile gold layer. Regular wiping and gentle cleaning are vital to keeping both looking their best.
