A "staple" for your jewelry collection: we introduce the Paperclip Chain. (Pun intended)
Material: 14kt gold filled / sterling silver
Length: 6.5 + 1in extension chain
Why gold filled?
With proper care, 14kt gold filled jewelry can last a lifetime. It serves as a cost effective alternative to pure gold jewelry without sacrificing quality and durability. Gold filled jewelry contains 100% more gold than gold plated jewelry, it is generally safe for wearers with sensitivities to common metals, and it is tarnish resistant.
What is gold filled jewelry?
Despite its name, gold filled jewelry refers to a process in which a layer of karat gold is heat- and pressure- bonded to a layer of base metal. This process keeps the metal tarnish resistant because it completely covers the surface of the base metal. It looks like solid gold since its outermost layer is actually gold, however, it is a harder, more durable, and less expensive option than solid gold.
Please note that metals can tarnish over time when exposed to chemicals such as water, hair spray, perfume and lotions. Gold is generally a soft metal; therefore, it should be worn with care to avoid bending, dents, and scratches.
How to care for your jewelry:
- Store your jewelry in a small plastic bag when you are not wearing it to protect it from chemicals from the environment & moisture.
- Avoid water, perfume, hair spray, and lotions while wearing your jewelry
- While 14kt gold filled jewelry will not tarnish quickly, it may get dirty. The oils from your skin and particles from your environment may transfer to the metal, causing it to lose its brightness. Therefore, you may need to clean your 14kt gold filled jewelry. You can do this using a soft jewelry brush and a solution of water and unscented dish soap. Gently clean your jewelry, rinse well, pat dry, and let it air dry. Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before putting it away.

Why choose gold filled?
If you want high quality jewelry that you can wear all the time without the high price of solid gold, gold filled jewelry is your best option. Gold filled jewelry is not as common among larger jewelry companies because it cannot be manufactured or cast. Each piece of jewelry must be carefully made by hand and is therefore more difficult and more expensive to make. Here at CLD, we feel it is worth it to go the extra mile to create high quality jewelry that WE want to wear and are OBSESSED with. We hope you will feel the same :)
