Gold-plated jewelry generally has a thinner layer of gold than gold-filled jewelry. It usually tends to wear away faster. Many different methods are utilized for plating. ‘Gold-washed’ jewelry refers to jewelry with an extremely thin layer of gold that will wear off pretty soon. If the jewelry is for routine use, solid gold would be the ideal choice, as it is long-lasting. If you wish to wear the jewelry only once in a while, you can go in for gold-plated jewelry. If used routinely, the gold layer tends to wear off, which would expose the metal below and might cause an allergic reaction. Metals containing more gold such as 14 carat gold jewelry can be used by people having an allergy to metals like nickel. Though gold-plated jewelry offers a look similar to gold jewelry at a cheaper rate, good quality solid gold jewelry would definitely be more durable.
