WHAT IS GOLD-FILLED?Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold mechanically bonded to a base of brass or silver. Most high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high-carat gold, and gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last 10 to 30 years though the layer of gold will eventually wear off exposing the metal underneath. The layer of gold on gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating. Gold-filled jewelry typically has .5% gold alloy as compared to .05% (or less) for gold-plated.
HOW TO CLEAN GOLD-FILLED JEWELRYGold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or "dipped" products. Nor does it tarnish as readily as silver. Many owners find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water. Hot weather and water will not damage the material.
