Gold-Plated

gold pla·ted | ˈgōld ˈplā-ted

adjective

A term for a piece made up of a base metal, bonded with a thin layer of gold (less than 1/20th of the total weight of the piece)

With moderate to heavy use, both gold-filled and gold-plated jewelry will eventually lose their coating, leaving the base metal exposed.
