Gold Plated Mother of Pearl Cuff Bracelet at RM KANDY

Gold Plated vs Gold Filled Jewelry

Do you know the difference? 

Gold Plated: The process of gold plating is one where a minuscule layer of gold is applied over a base metal (usually brass).

RMKANDY uses 21ct and 24ct amount of real gold to create the gold plated collections. It is a small amount and why gold plating will wear off in time. 

However, with quality plating such as our pieces, it will still keep its yellow look, but become slightly less shiny or vibrant in time. If you don't want to spend a fortune on jewels and want the best quality on the market for the price, our pieces are a great option for you fashionistas!

The Superfly Stud Earrings as shown on the picture are a perfect example of a 24ct gold plated earring created with the labradorite semi precious stone.

Gold Filled: Gold Filled jewelry is made by wrapping layers of solid gold (12K, 14K, or 18K) sheets around a base metal (usually brass). Unlike gold plated jewelry, gold filled jewelry actually has a measurable amount of gold in it. RMKANDY pieces are created using 14k gold filled and of excellent quality. 

This process of adhering solid gold sheets makes for jewelry that does not tarnish, peel, chip or discolor. If your gold filled jewelry has ever changed color at all, it's usually just because of dirt build up and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Also unlike Silver it won't tarnish.

Ladies, rest assured, it will be a great investment to wear on a daily basis. If you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on real solid gold, this is a great option to adopt to shine as bright as solid gold without hurting your bank account!

The good thing is to have choices that best suit your jewelry needs!
