Gold-plate, is a method of covering another type of metal with a very thin, almost microscopic, film of pure gold by electroplating it.Gold-plated items are fairly strong,but it can be susceptible to nicks, dents, and bending.Gold-plating can lend an attractive finish to a piece that must be sturdy and durable.So if you take care of your items, your jewelry will remain intact and like new.

Gold-filled jewelry is a bit more valuable than gold-plated. In fact, there is almost 100 percent more gold in gold-filled items than is found in gold-plated items. Gold-filled items have a much thicker layer of gold on them, and the gold is a much higher quality. Gold-filled items also use a gold alloy, which can be very strong depending on the karat of the gold that is used. You won't need to worry about gold-filled jewelry tarnishing, and even if you have an allergy to certain metals, you won't have to worry about allergies from metals such as nickel.
Generally,a natural gemstone must exhibit some degree of beauty, rarity, and durability. Beauty however is in the eye of the beholder. It is therefore subjective and can vary from culture to culture. The degree of rarity and durability is also subjective and relative. However, many gems may undergo some form of treatment before or after cutting and polishing. these are referred to as natural enhanced.  

Sterling Silver consists of 92.5% silver, and the remaining part consists of copper – mostly copper. This is the reason why Sterling Silver is popularly referred to as 925 Sterling Silver or just 925 Silver.

The reason silver needs to be combined with other metals is that it is very difficult to make great designs with just pure silver, which is very soft and malleable. A bit of hardness has to be introduced, by adding other metals such as copper. That’s why jewelers are capable of making the most intricate and complex designs with 925 Sterling Silver.
