GOLD FILLED VS GOLD PLATED

- May irritate sensitive skin

- Lasts forever
- Most hypoallergenic
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 was looking for cute Huggies and everyday earings for 6 piercings. I have loved them, as soon as I opened the box I could see the quality. I love them. Also came with a cute note.
I absolutely fell in love with these earrings but after a week of wearing the starfish they turned black! my ear turned a slight green colour so unfortunately won't be wearing them again :(
The delivery was fast and easy.
The earrings are really lovely. The silver has a beautiful shine to it and the designs are highly detailed. The box presentation was perfect. Couldn’t be happier.
I haven’t had the problem of them falling out like other reviews, I’ve slept in them multiple times with no problems. Perhaps the backing has changed?
I have lost two earrings already as a result of the back falling off, so I only have one complete set left, although on the bright side, they do mix and match well.
Ok so are they are absolutely gorgeous? yes. Did I get several compliments the first HOUR I wore them? Yep. Did they fall out and go missing within two hours of wearing? Yeah.
The posts are so small they only just got through my ear and the backs provided are really loose. Would suggest a longer post and sturdier backing (but they're very cute).
