Please note that this is an add on item ONLY. Please add this listing to your cart if you would like a gold filled chain instead of the standard gold plated chain.
Here at Grab Bag Botany, we strive to keep our products as affordable as possible, while still offering quality materials. Most of our necklaces come standard with a 24k gold plated brass chain.
What's the difference between gold filled and gold plated?
Gold PLATED pieces are made with a base metal such as copper or brass (Grab Bag Botany uses brass) with a thin layer (about 0.05%) of gold plating. This gold plating looks just as beautiful and should hold up with time, however it can tarnish as the gold plating wears off from improper use (wearing your piece in water, while sweating, or rubbing against skin oils or skin care products).
Gold FILLED pieces are made with a base metal with a much thicker layer of gold (5% or more). Gold filled pieces are non-tarnish and will last for years!
