Man holding a gold barGold is still as desired as it was thousands of years ago, and many people still prefer gold for their jewelry pieces. But many people do not know the quality of the gold they are purchasing, and that there are various types of gold plating, you can alternatively use in your jewelry pieces.

To understand the different types of gold-coating from jewelers in Salt Lake City, AAA Jewelers recommends that you need to look at the metal’s quality stamp. The kind of gold plating used is found in the initials on the quality stamp. Here are several gold plating options you will come across.

Gold Plated

If your piece is gold-plated it means it has a thin gold layer on its surface. The base metal of your jewelry can be brass or stainless steel. For a piece to be termed ‘gold-plated,’ its gold layer should be not less than 7millionth of one inch, and it should contain more than 10K gold. Gold plated jewelry is indicated on its stamp as GEP or GP.

Gold Overlay

This jewelry is also called rolled gold-plated. It has a broader gold coating compared to gold-plated jewelry and is more durable. Rolled gold-plated jewelry pieces have more than 10K gold, but this content might be less than 1/20 of your jewelry’s weight. The underlying metal in this jewelry is stainless steel, copper or brass. The stamp of a gold overlay has G.O or R.G.P initials.

Gold Filled

The gold content of gold filled pieces is more than 10K and more than 5% of your jewelry’s weight. With proper care, gold filled jewelry neither peels off nor flakes and is harmless for those with sensitive skin. Gold filled pieces have a GF mark on their quality stamp.

From the above options, you can now choose the right gold jewelry piece without spending too much. You also understand gold plating much better and pick the best piece for you. Get a genuine jeweler and start revamping your gold jewelry collection.
