14k Gold Fill
What is Gold Fill Jewellery :
Gold Fill is also known as ‘rolled gold’ or ‘gold bonded’, and is created by mechanically bonding a layer of gold to a layer of base metal. Gold filled has a distinct layer of gold and the core is brass. The gold is then bonded to the surface of the brass using heat and pressure. This is a permanent bond so the gold won’t flake, peel or fall off.
By law, the total weight of a gold filled item must contain 5% (or 1/20) of gold. If it contains less then 5%, it cannot legally be called gold filled.
Gold filled items are perfect if you’re looking for a high quality material but an affordable alternative to solid gold. Gold Filled can last a lifetime if taken care of properly, and isn’t affected by water or hot weather.
How to care for your Gold Fill Pieces :
⟡ Gold Filled items can be worn in water. Just make sure to dry off carefully afterwards to stop them tarnishing.
⟡ Spraying perfumes or hairspray onto your gold filled jewellery will increase the risk of tarnishing. Get ready & 5 minutes later put your pieces on.
⟡ Any clean and soft cotton cloth is perfect to polish or clean your gold filled pieces.
⟡Do not leave chemicals on your gold filled creations, rinse and polish again with a soft cloth.
