Lately I've been getting many questions about gold-filled jewelry so I thought it would be helpful to write a blog to summarize everything you need to know about gold-filled jewelry and how to care for them.


What is gold-filled?


The term gold-filled, gold, and gold-plated get thrown around a lot so it can get really confusing! Gold fill is the new choice for many jewelry lovers because of its quality and price. Gold fill is a layered material constructed in two or three layers. The base metal, usually made with brass, is permanently bonded with a thick layer of gold. Gold fill typically contains 100x more gold than gold-plated jewelry which makes it much better quality and longer-lasting. Our gold-filled jewelry comes in 14k gold fill or 18k gold fill — a perfect option if you don't want to worry about your jewelry tarnishing easily or have sensitive skin.


How to care for gold-filled jewelry?


Let's talk about how to take care of your gold-filled jewelry to keep that beautiful gold layer shining. Although it is safe to wear in water, make sure to dry your gold-filled jewelry thoroughly after it comes in contact with water. It's also important to keep your it away from chemicals such as shampoo, lotion, and perfume. When cleaning your gold-filled jewelry, add a small amount of soft liquid soap in warm water and gently scrub your jewelry with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly and store it in a jewelry box or a pouch. Visit our jewelry care page for more details on how to clean and maintain your jewelry.
