  • Gold-plated: A layer of gold that’s thicker than gold-washed and less thick than gold-filled.
  • Gold-washed: The thinnest layer of gold pressure-bonded onto another metal.
  • Gold-filled: A thick, outside layer of solid gold. It’s no wonder it looks and feels like solid gold! It’s as hypoallergenic as gold too.
  • It has 100x the gold content of gold-plating. Unlike gold-plating, gold-filled jewellery is regulated and doesn’t tarnish or wear away.

*Gold-filled is the economical alternative to total solid gold jewellery
