What is the difference between Gold-filled jewellery and Gold-plated jewellery?
包金首飾和鍍金首飾有什麼區別?


It is really good to know the difference so that you know what to shop for and what you are getting. You are going to pay a little bit more for Gold-filled jewellery, but it will stand the test of time, and in our opinion, it is well worth it.
我們很建議您多了解包金首飾與鍍金首飾兩者之間的差異,這樣您就知道將會購買以及獲得怎樣的產品。您將為包金首飾花多些少的錢,但包金首飾可以經受時間的考驗,在我們看來,這是值得的。


Gold-Plated jewellery:
The process of gold-plating is one where a minuscule layer of gold is applied over a base metal (usually brass). The amount of real gold used is actually VERY tiny which generally and technically is considered unmeasurable (less than 0.05%). Gold-plated jewellery therefore will wear off in a pretty quick period of time. And due to Gold-plated jewellery has only a tiny, almost not existent, layer of gold, the base metal therefore comes in contact with the skin and often causes irritation.
鍍金首飾:
鍍金的過程是將極小的金層塗在基金屬(通常是黃銅)上。實際使用的真金量實際上非常小,通常和技術上被認為是不可測量的(小於0.05%),因此鍍金首飾將在相當快的時間內磨損。同時,由於鍍金首飾只有一層小而不存在的金層,基金屬會與皮膚接觸,並會經常引起刺激與敏感。


Gold-Filled jewellery:
Gold-Filled jewellery is made with wrapping layers of 14K solid gold sheets around a brass base metal. Unlike Gold-plated jewellery, Gold-filled jewellery actually has a measurable amount of gold within. The process of adhering solid gold sheets (with heat and pressure) makes Gold-filled jewellery does NOT tarnish, peel, chip or discolour. If Your Gold-filled jewellery has ever changed colour at all, it is usually just because of dirt built up. Your Gold-filled jewellery can be cleaned with a damp cloth or mild soap with warm water. 

包金首飾:
我們的包金首飾是由14K 純金板包裹在黃銅基金屬周圍而製成。與鍍金珠寶不同,我們的包金首飾實際上有可衡量的黃金。黏附純金板(具有熱量和壓力)的過程使我們的首飾不會褪色、剝落、碎屑或變色。如果你的包金首飾曾經改變過顏色,它通常只是因為在首飾表層建立了污垢。包金首飾可以用濕布或低刺激性的肥皂和溫水清洗。
