What is Goldfilled מהו גולדפילד

March 24, 2011

I occasional get asked what exactly is gold filled and what is the difference between gold filled and gold plating.Gold filled is made of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure onto a base metal, occasionally brass but in some cases silver. The gold part can be any type of gold in weight and in color, although the most common ones are yellow and rose 14k.If you are looking to compare it with gold plating its a bit tricky since the gold layer on gold plated jewelry depends on the manufacturer and varies,  a rough figure is that Gold-filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating.

This is of course just the tip of the iceberg , if you are looking for more in depth explanations you are welcome to read this detailed article : http://www.artisanplating.com/articles/goldfilled.html

לעתים קרובות אני נשאלת מה ההבדל בין ציפוי זהב לגולדפילד ובכן גולדפילד הינו שכבת זהב המהודקת בחום ובלחץ לשכבת מתכת בסיס, מתכת הבסיס יכולה להיות פליז נחושת ולעיתים אף כסף, לסוג שכבת הבסיס ישנה השפעה על קושי המוצר הסופי. הזהב יכול להיות 14 קרט 12 קרט או יותר והצבע יכול להיות כל צבע של זהב, צהוב, אדום או לבן   השוואת עובי שכבת הזהב בגולדפילד ובציפוי זהב לא קלים מאחר והעובי בציפוי זהב משתנה בצורה קיצונית בין יצרן ליצרן אך באופן גס מגדירים המומחים כי היחס הינו בין פי 50 לפי 100,000 מי שמעוניין בקריאה יותר מעמיקה מוזמן לקרוא את המאמר המצ”ב :http://www.artisanplating.com/articles/goldfilled.html)
