I use a lot of Gold Filled for my jewelry pieces and
the questions of "what is gold filled?", "will it last?" and"how do I care for it?" often arise.
So here are the answers:
Gold filled jewelry consists of several mechanically bonded layers
of at least 10k gold to a non-precious base metal.
The bond produced is a permanent one.
This process offers better durability
so the gold won’t wear like gold plated pieces. With proper care your gold filled jewelry can last a lifetime. A soft cloth and warm water are all you need to shine and maintain the beauty of your gold filled jewelry. Hope this helps!
