Gold plating is a method of encasing another metal with an extremely thin film of gold. Contrastingly, gold-filled metal is a mixed metal containing a higher ratio of gold than gold-plated metal. Gold-filled jewellery is also dipped in a thicker layer of gold and is consequently more valuable and hard-wearing than gold-plated pieces.


Our finery is crafted from 14 karat gold-filled metal containing approximately 100 percent more gold than is typically found in gold-plated jewellery. If appropriately cared for, our metals can remain untarnished much longer than gold-plated jewellery.

*Please note that some Limited Edition designs are not crafted entirely of 14-karat gold-filled metal. Please see individual item descriptions.
