Frequently asked questions
What is PVD & how is it different from Gold Plating?

PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) utilizes a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and regular wear than gold plating.They can have up to 10 X more Gold than with Gold Plating. Gold plating occurs when a thin layer of real gold is plated onto another metal, such as stainless steel.

What is the difference between Gold Plate & Gold Fill?

14k Gold-Filled - Whether Yellow or Rose Gold

Gold Plate is a thin wash of Gold over a Base Metal. This Gold will eventually wear off & cannot be cleaned with dipping solutions or cleaning cloths without removing some of the Gold

Gold Fill is a process whereby 14 K Gold is heat bonded onto the base metal of Brass or Copper. Because it is heat bonded on, it does not rub off like plated jewelry does. This means that you can use any metal cleaning dipping solutions or cleaning cloths safely.

14K Gold Fill is an affordable alternative to Solid 14K Gold that will last a lifetime.
