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.
