What Exactly does Gold Filled mean?

Gold filled is an alloy of 14K gold which is fused with a base metal usually brass.  The final piece, if it were melted down, would equal 5% pure gold.  Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold and is so durable that the gold can last anywhere from 5 – 30 years depending on the wear.

We have many gold filled pieces from which to choose.  You can wear your gold filled jewelry to bed, in the shower, and while you exercise, but please be sure to remove your jewelry when swimming in a pool, sitting in a hot tub, or using cleaning products like bleach.

At some point, you will want to give your jewelry a good cleaning.  You can use warm water and a mild soap like diluted Dawn dish washing soap.  Make sure your jewelry is completely dried before storing it in a plastic bag or pouch, as the excess water will cause it to tarnish.

As always, please feel free to give us a call at 252-355-6714 with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your jewelry.
