Q5. What's the difference between gold dipped, gold plated, and gold filled?
A5.    To make gold-filled jewelry, the core metal is sandwiched between two layers of gold alloy, heated, and passed through a roller many times to bond the metals together and thin out that sheet. This gold needs to be 10K or higher. 
          To make gold plated jewelry, an electric current is used to negatively charge the base metal and positively charge a solution containing gold ions. The positive gold ions are attracted to the negative charge of the core metal, which slowly forms a layer of gold on top of the core metal. Gold-dipped jewelry has a layer of gold alloy with a thickness less than two microns.
