Gold Filled is a great quality material. It has a thick layer of 14k gold on the outside, bonded to a base of brass. After gold alloys, Gold Filled is your best option when it comes to golden jewellery. With your love and care a gold filled item can last a lifetime.
**NEWSFLASH** Gold Filled is not the same as gold plated
The main difference is that Gold Filled has a much thicker layer of 14k gold. Gold filled is regulated by law and has to contain at least 5% gold by weight. In comparison, the golden layers on gold plated are very thin and contain mostly 0,05% or less. That means that Gold Filled has a 100 times thicker layer of gold than most gold plated items! Gold plated is not regulated by law, so most of the time you don´t even know how thick the layer of gold is.
Another big difference is that the 14k golden layer on gold filled is bonded to the base of brass. Because of that it will last much longer than gold plated. The golden layer on gold plated items is like a thin layer on top of the base, so not bonded, and over time the golden colour will wear off. Even just by wearing it.
So that´s why we say: Join the gold filled revolution!
Avoid applying perfumes, lotions, sprays, creams etc. directly onto your jewellery.
If you are not wearing your jewellery store them in a box or pouch in a cool and dry place.
Remove your jewellery before exercising to prevent breakage or deforming.
Wear your jewellery in the shower? Yes! Water won't make the colour wear off. Just be aware that, just like with any jewellery, water will reduce the shine and possibly the teint of gold filled over time. Silver might oxidise and the colour may become darker. The metal itself can handle it though! And the good news, gold filled and sterling silver can be cleaned easily. How? Read on and you will find out.
Chlorinated swimming pools and jacuzzis aren't friends with any type of jewellery. So make sure to take your jewellery off before your swim to avoid damaging your pieces. The same applies to heavy cleaning agents, like detergents and acids.
We recommend cleaning your jewellery regularly to maintain the beautiful shiny looks.
