A: Gold filled is different than gold plated. When a chain, bead or finding is gold filled, that means that the gold is fused with a base metal during the production process; whereas, with gold plate, there is a thin layer of gold over the base metal itself.
We cannot guarantee whether or not metal will "turn" or change color because that has to do with how you store it and the level of acidity in your skin. If you are looking for something durable, a filled metal is usually better than a plated metal.
