 What is gold-filled jewellery?

Gold-filled jewellery is made by bonding a thick layer of gold onto a base metal core, typically brass or copper. The gold layer is much thicker than that of gold-plated jewellery, making it more durable and resistant to tarnishing and wear. To be considered gold-filled, the gold layer must be at least 5% of the item's total weight. Gold-filled jewellery is a more affordable alternative to solid gold jewellery while still offering a similar look and durability. It can be cared for similarly to solid gold jewellery, and can last many years, unlike gold-plated jewellery.

How do I care for my jewellery?

To care for your jewellery, it is important to keep it away from perfumes, lotions, cleaning chemicals, and other potions. Additionally, you should remove your jewellery before taking a shower, bath, swimming, or using hot tubs. To prevent tarnishing, store your jewelry in an air-tight container with an anti-tarnish strip (for sterling silver jewelry only). Finally, clean your jewelry using a polishing cloth to keep it looking shiny and new.
