Gold-filled is the closest alternative to solid gold. Gold filled jewelry has a thick layer of solid gold bonded onto the base layer, usually brass or sterling silver. Compared to gold plated which uses a process of electroplating that quickly dips your jewelry in gold, resulting in a miniscule layer of gold, gold-filled is much more durable and long lasting.
There are 3 basic levels of gold jewelry. Solid gold, gold-filled, and gold plated.
- Solid gold contains the most gold, with 24 karat gold containing 100% gold. Gold-filled jewelry typically contains 5% solid gold in weight, while gold plated contains about 0.001% solid gold in weight.
- The process of making gold filled jewelry is much different to gold plated jewelry. Gold plated uses an electroplating process that quickly dips your jewelry in gold. With gold-filled, the thick layer of gold is pressure bonded onto the base metal, resulting in a very strong and durable ‘plating’.
- Gold-filled lasts 10x more than gold plated, making it hypoallergenic for those who cannot wear gold plated. Longer life times mean you are also producing less waste and saving money over time from having to buy more cheap jewelry.

Seriously the best upgrade to my jewelry reservoir. It’s perfect for everyday work outfits and also stunning for a night out! Love them so much I had to send for the matching necklace!
These earrings are crafted to perfection! The pearls glow with such a magical iridescence under any lighting, so it'll be sure to catch anyones eye! For the size of the pearls, they're fairly light and barely noticeable, (unless you're moving your head around like crazy) and I haven't had any bad reaction to the materials used! I absolutely adore the craftsmanship Chi puts into creating these stunning pieces, truly great quality and value for what it's worth!
Beautifully constructed, handmade pearl earrings. A really special piece of jewellery. Love supporting a great small business like s-kin studio.
They look great and I love the size of the pearls. They’re really good quality earrings and not too heavy. I have hypersensitive skin/lobe piercings and haven’t had a bad reaction.
Love these earrings, they are one of my fav jewellery from s-kin. Perfect sized pearls and not too heavy at all. Also love that everything here is gold filled and not plated :)
