Why do we use gold filled versus gold plated?

The layer of gold alloy on gold-plated jewelry is so minuscule it is barely noticeable in the above image. Gold-filled jewelry has 100x more gold alloy than gold plated and because that layer is so much thicker, it means gold-filled jewelry lasts longer and stands up to wear and tear better than gold plated. All it would take is one small scratch on a gold-plated piece to expose the jeweler’s brass underneath.

As said before in the first section, gold-filled pieces are generally more durable than gold-plated due to the thicker layer of gold alloy. The longevity of either type is dependent on wear, environment, and quality of the piece.

As long as the piece is well cared for, gold-filled jewelry can last a lifetime.
Gold plated jewelry is not very durable and can’t stand up to much heat, water, or wear.
