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've been looking forward to getting these hoops since I bought them, and they definitely lived up the expectation. Great size for everyday wear and ultimately just the perfect minimalist piece that you can wear with anything. I absolutely love!
Loooooove these huggies! Worn them everyday for 6 months and they look as cute as they did the first day. No itching and or tarnishing which is a godsend for my sensitive ears.
Beautiful earrings, I was surprised how sturdy the are considering they are quite small, and they are so easy to put on and take off, I also loved the personalised message and the eco friendly packaging. I cant wait to buy more jewellery from skin.
I was looking for something I could wear 24/7 and these are perfect! Love them ❤️
So cute, dainty and good quality!
