Note: Gold or silver "filled" wire refers to a copper core bonded with a thick layer of gold or silver. While the copper core allows the wire to be less costly than solid gold or silver, the outer layer of gold or silver is thick enough to not rub off with normal wear or polishing.
Unlike electroplating, which deposits a layer of gold or silver only a few microns thick on the base wire, and can rub off over time, gold or silver filled wire contains a much higher percentage of gold or silver and can last almost indefinitely with proper care.
