What is Gold-Filled?

What is Gold Filled Care and Information Sheet
Gold filled is a thick sheet of 14K or 18K gold that is pressure-bonded to jeweler’s brass. The alloy is 500% more durable than gold-plating. Gold-filled is water resistant, preferred by customers looking for hypoallergenic jewelry options, and a budget-friendly option to solid gold.
CARE: For gold-filled jewelry care,  “last on, first off” is a good practice. When dressing, put  jewelry on last, and take it off first when undressing. Remove prior to physical activities. To clean, gently rinse in warm water mix with 1 drop of Dawn dish soap. Rinse with cold water. Pat dry with a soft towel. Do not use jewelry cleaning chemicals/polishing cloths. Store individually to avoid scratches.
DISCLAIMER: Gold-filled jewelry is not solid gold jewelry. The lifetime wear of gold-filled jewelry depends on the wearer’s body chemistry, care, and protection from harsh agents such as salt/chlorine, cosmetics and harsh environments. Generally, gold-filled jewelry can last for 1-2 years. But we cannot offer a guaranteed since too many factors can impact the longevity and performance of gold-filled jewelry performance, from an individual skin pH to geographic environment.
For customers seeking jewelry with an unlimited guaranteed for wear and performance, we recommend investing in 100% solid gold jewelry.
