Frequently asked questions
Gold Plated Jewellery
Please kindly note some of my products are made of gold plated, over brass material, so it doesn't last as long as real gold but people love gold plated because it is very affordable and yet beautiful. Plated material tarnishes at some point and can last longer with proper care.
Gold filled Jewellery.
It's an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. Nickel and lead free.
Do gold filled chain fade?
Although a gold filled piece of jewellery is not solid gold, it has the same desirable properties and look of solid gold. It won't tarnish and will not rub off or turn colour. Wearers who are sensitive to certain metals can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction.
