gold filled, explained
a closer look...
and some more info about our one-of-a-kind pieces... So, what is gold filled exactly? We hadn't even heard about it until a couple of years ago and now we won't ever go back!
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is a real alternative to solid gold but at a much nicer pricepoint.
Gold filled items are generally considered lifetime products, and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will in electroplated products. Gold filled jewelry is often called the wave of the future because it offers all the same characteristics as solid gold such as strength, durability and beauty.
Caring for Gold Filled items is as easy as caring for any gold jewelry. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth. So, gold filled for the win!
