Gold Fill is the closest alternative to solid gold.
Unlike gold-plated or gold vermeil jewelry, gold fill is made through a process called pressure & heat bonding. This means a thick layer of gold is essentially melted and pressurised onto the base metal making it extremely durable and tarnish resistant. Gold plated/ vermeil jewelry only has the gold flash dipped or painted on.
The thickness of Gold Fill vs gold plated/vermeil jewelry is up to 100% thicker.
Gold vermeil thickness can vary between less than 0.1 micron - 3+ microns of electroplated gold.
Gold Fill must have a minimum of 1/20 weight of solid gold in the jewelry piece to be considered Gold Filled.
Simply put, even with the same amount of gold in the jewelry piece, the Gold Fill jewelry piece will last longer due to its manufacturing process.
