What is Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled jewelry is hypoallergenic and created by pressure bonding a layer of solid gold onto another metal, typically brass. When taken care of properly, gold-filled jewelry is a life-time product that can be worn daily. Gold-filled pieces are higher in value and consists of 100% more solid gold compared with gold-plated pieces. Further more, gold-filled pieces are an economical alternative to solid gold. The thick bonded gold layer allows resistance to tarnishing, discoloration, and chipping. For care instructions, read our Care Procedures below.
With good care, gold-filled jewelry can last a lifetime. Gold-filled materials can withstand most everyday activities, but for best care, avoid swimming and showering for long durations. To clean, use mild soap and warm water to delicately wipe jewelry.
