What is Gold Filled Hardware?
Gold Plated Jewelry
Cheapest and Thinnest Layer of Gold = Short Term Colour Rentention
Gold plating is the cheapest and simplest way to make gold jewelry. The reason for this is because most manufacturers and brands make their plated jewelry with the thinnest layer possible, which has the potential to make the layer of gold very thin and brittle. Due to how thin the layer is, the plating wears off easily.
Gold filled Jewelry *what we are using*
Thick Layer of Gold = Does not Rub or Flake Off Easily = Long Term Colour Rentention
Gold fill is certainly a far step up from gold plated. Many times it is nice to have the gold look without having to pay the very high price of solid gold. Gold filled pieces come out very nice, they are durable and high quality. The gold layer is nice and thick and does not (very easily or often) rub off or flake off. The process is much harder and more expensive than plating jewelry. If you can find a gold filled piece of jewelry for around the same price as plated, it is certainly recommended to go with gold filled, even if it means dishing out a few extra bucks.
Solid Gold Jewelry
99.9% Pure Gold = Too Soft and Fragile = Very Expensive
Solid gold is too soft to hold its shape and to be worn as jewelry. Most solid gold jewelry pieces are made with a percentage of gold mixed with an alloy to give it strength. It is usually sold by per gram weight which makes it very expensive.
IN CONCLUSION: Compared to gold plated or vermeil, gold filled has the thickest layer of gold, meaning it can last longer before wearing down to its base metal. It is also less expensive than solid gold. Our hardware combines the pros of Gold Filled Technique + 925 Sterling Silver which allows the jewellery to be more durable. With proper care, your pieces can last up to years! S925 is also perfect for wearers who are allergic to nickel and lead.
