Our gold filled jewelry has an outer layer of gold, but the piece itself is filled by another metal (usually silver, copper, or brass).
Gold-filled jewelry is more dependable than gold-plated or vermeil because, legally, gold must constitute 5% of the piece’s total weight. It is also mechanically bonded to enhance its strength. These extra treatments mean gold filled jewelry survives longer than pieces subjected to other coating methods, sometimes lasting decades before the base metal starts to show.
Your Gold Filled jewelry is meant to last with normal wear. To clean it simply immerse it in warm soapy water. Pat dry with a soft cloth. Never use commercial cleaners on your jewelry.
