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.
