Gold filled and Rose gold filled is a standard that requires 1/20th (5%) pure gold by weight. It is a strict regulated process that involves pressure bonding multiple layers of solid 14k gold with extreme heat over a core of high quality jeweler’s brass. The result of this process is a durable, high quality, real gold product. The only difference between Rose gold filled or Gold filled is only in the color, not in the quality or durability. Both contain the same amount of 14 karat solid gold just in different colors. There is combination of metals that are added to the pure 24k gold that changes the color.Also 14k gold filled allows me to offer top of the line quality and durability at an affordable price.
The gold in 14k gold filled is absolutely real. There’s a thick layer of solid 14k gold on the outside of a jewelers brass core. The 14k gold that’s on the outside of gold filled is the same gold as you would get from a 14k solid gold piece.
Gold-fill is absolutely your best option after solid gold for quality and durability. It will not flake, wear or turn your skin green. Gold filled jewelry can stay beautiful for a lifetime, especially with a little care.
After solid gold options, Gold filled jewelry is certainly your best quality for gold pieces. In theory, gold fill items can last a lifetime. Depending on how you care for your gold filled pieces and a variety of factors.
It is possible for gold filled to tarnish under certain circumstances, but it doesnt tarnish easily. Removing it prior to cleaning/using chemicals, taking care for your piece to not come in direct contact with hairspray, cologne, hand and body lotions. If your piece does, Clean your piece right after.
Gold filled is higher in quality and durability, there is also a substantial amount more gold in gold filled than gold plated. There are strict regulated standards for 14K gold filled, while standards for gold plated have much broader ranges of thicknesses, so you cant be sure how much gold is in the plated layer. The outer surface of gold plated will wear rather quickly exposing the base metal used for the piece, causing the piece to look worn and dingy.
Yes you absolutely can wear gold filled with sensitive skin. Non of our jewelry contains nickel. Over 99% of people find they have no sensitivity to gold filled jewelry. Because the outside of the piece is solid 14k gold, gold filled interacts with your skin in the same way solid 14k gold would. If you do not have any sensitivities to solid gold, you will find gold-filled agrees with your skin.
It can actually be good for cleaning gold filled jewelry to shower with it on so long as you use mild soaps. At the same time, make sure that your shampoos and soaps are mild as certain chemicals can negatively impact the look of gold. If youre not sure, just make sure you remove your jewelry prior to bathing or showering including your gold and silver along with your gold filled.
Yes, Although the gold filled surface will not be affected it wont last as long due to snagging on sheets, blankets and clothes as we move through the night. If you can remember to take your pieces off before heading to bed, they will last longer preventing them from damage due to snagging etc..
The best practice is to clean them gently with water and mild soap, rinsing them in lukewarm water and using a soft cloth to dry them (like the kind you use for your smart phone or eye glasses). Only polish them when they really need it. It also helps to avoid contact with lotions, hairsprays, colognes and perfumes. If this happens just wash them gently and dry with a soft cloth.
