WHAT IS GOLD-FILLED?
What is Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled components contain 100 times more gold than gold-plated components and can last a lifetime with proper wear and care. Gold-filled is an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another material, usually brass or silver. Alternatively, gold-plated has a thin layer of gold electroplated onto the base material. Gold-filled has a stronger resistance to tarnishing and flaking, so when possible, we will always try to use gold-filled materials to give you better quality pieces.
For long lasting jewelry, we suggest not wearing your jewelry in water & avoiding contact with lotions, perfumes, and oils.
