14K GOLD CARE

Gold-filled jewelry is a perfect balance of both durable and reasonably affordable. Similar to gold-plated jewelry, it is important to properly care for gold-filled jewelry to keep it looking nice for as long as possible. Proper care includes being conscious of how you store, wear and clean your jewelry.


WHAT IS GOLD-FILLED?

Gold filled, also known as “rolled gold” or “gold overlay”  is made up of a layer of solid gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. In order for a metal to be legally considered Gold-filled, it must have a gold content of at least 5% of the total weight of the item.

STORING GOLD-FILLED JEWELRY

Properly storing your jewelry will help maximize how long the gold-filled exterior layer lasts. Here are some storage tips:

    •    Store individual pieces separately.

    •    Store each piece in an airtight bag.

    •    Place in an area with low humidity.

    •    Keep clasps/closures unhooked.

 

WEARING GOLD-FILLED JEWELRY

Wearing your gold-filled jewelry regularly without caring for it will accelerate the depletion of the exterior layer. You should remove your gold-filled jewelry before doing any of the following:

    •    Using household cleaning supplies

    •    Cooking with mustard, onions, eggs, or any other foods that contain sulfur

    •    Sunbathing

    •    Swimming

    •    Spraying Hairspray

    •    Putting on Lotion and Makeup

CARING FOR GOLD-FILLED JEWELRY

Wipe your jewelry carefully with a soft cloth to keep it clean. You can clean gold-filled jewelry by washing in warm soapy water. Use lukewarm water and a couple drops of dish soap (not antibacterial, as it leaves a film residue). Use a soft toothbrush to get into tight places. Rinse and dry with a soft polishing cloth immediately to avoid mineral residue from the water.
