Gold Filled Info
 
 

14kt gold filled is a technique where 14kt gold gets heat bonded to a core of brass.

This creates a product that will not fade and has the subtle sheen of karat gold.

 

The layer of gold on gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating.

With proper care you can wear a 14kt gold filled piece for 10-15 years without it showing any signs of wear.

(Delicate chains wear off faster and need to be cleaned more often).

Because of its nature as a material and the jewelry being handmade there may be visible, but strategically placed seams.

 

Care should be taken when cleaning to protect the layer of gold from being worn away or nicked. Do not use abrasive compounds to clean the jewelry.

The best way to care for it is to gently scrub it with an old soft toothbrush and a mild dishwashing liquid.

Rinse and lay on a towel to dry.

Be sure it is completely dry before storing.
