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.

I am so pleased that I found S-kin Studio. I was able to visit both their online and in person store. Chi and her staff were so helpful in helping me customise these earrings for my wedding day. They are nothing short of perfect, and I am so happy that I was able to support not only an Australian brand but Australian sourced materials and products ethically made. Very happy with this purchase and will be back again!
The earrings are gorgeous but the pearls have what look like small scratch marks allover😢
I suspect that might have happened during the delivery process as they were loose in the box.
You can't see the scratches when you have them on though and they still look amazing!
As usual, S-kin Jewelry creates the most stunning, golden hour glistening pieces. I love every single piece I've bought from this shop! They've become my most treasured staples, this includes the signet ring, pearl bracelet, earrings and necklaces. Thank you, Chi! x
True craftsmanship and pride in your trade. Keep up the excellent and creative designs!
