What is Gold-Filled Jewelry?

What Is Gold-filled Jewelry?

Gold-filled is made from solid "Gold" and "filled" with other alloys.  Gold-filled wears like solid Gold because its outer surface is solid Gold.  Electroplating is NOT a part of this process.  Gold-filled is created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of Karat Gold to copper, brass, or some other base metal.  The bond produced is a permanent one.

How Long Will Gold-Filled Jewelry Last?

Gold-filled offers all the same physical characteristics as solid Gold such as beauty, durability, and strength, but at a fraction of the cost.  With reasonable care, it will last a lifetime.

How Do I Care For My Gold-filled Jewelry?

Cleaning is recommended to maintain its beauty.  Wipe your jewelry carefully with a soft cloth to keep it clean and free of elements which oxidize.  

BUYER BEWARE:  If a listing says "Gold-plate/Gold-filled" something is wrong!  The jewelry in question can NOT be both.  It is either one or the other!  Ask the seller if the piece is stamped Gold-filled.  If the jewelry is truly 12K or 14K Gold-filled, it will be stamped on the clasp.
