About Gold Filled

WHAT IS GOLD FILLED?

  • Gold filled is a beautiful, more affordable alternative to solid gold.
  • It's created by taking a thick layer of 14kt pure gold and permanently bonding it over another metal.
  • Gold filled is just below solid gold when it comes to quality and value.
  • It’s created by taking a thick layer of 14k solid gold and bonding it through extreme heat and pressure onto a brass or silver base.
  • The color looks exactly like 14k gold.
  • Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold-filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.

GOLD FILLED vs. GOLD PLATED:

  • Gold filled is not plated.
  • There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate.
  • Unlike gold plated items, gold filled won’t flake, chip, peel, or turn colors.
  • Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant than gold-plated or “dipped” products. 
  • Gold filled can last a lifetime when properly cared for.

CARING FOR YOUR GOLD FILLED JEWELRY:

  • Your gold-filled jewelry will last for years if properly cared for.
  • Always remove jewelry before swimming and bathing.
  • Apply perfumes and creams well before putting on your jewelry.
  • It’s best to store your jewelry in an airtight container such as a small plastic baggie.

CLEANING YOUR GOLD FILLED JEWELRY:

  • Occasionally, gold-filled can tarnish over time and quicker depending on skin, the environment and lifestyle circumstances.
  • To clean your jewelry, rub with warm sudsy water (use a gentle household soap like liquid dove) using a cloth or very soft toothbrush - this helps  reach small nooks and crannies.
  • Rinse off all the soap with clean water.
  • Dry your jewelry with a clean cloth or paper towel. (Don't let it air dry.)
