What is 14K Gold-Filled?
Gold-Filled is a North America industry standard that legally requires 1/20th, or 5% pure gold by weight. It is a strictly regulated process that involves pressure bonding multiple layers of solid 14K gold with extreme heat over a core of high quality jeweler's brass, resulting in a durable, quality real gold product.
Is Gold-Filled jewelry real gold?
Absolutely! The gold in our 14K gold-filled necklaces is definitely real. There's a thick durable layer of real, solid 14K gold on the outside of a brass core. The 14K gold that's on the outside of our gold-filled necklaces is the same gold as you would get from a solid 14K piece.
Is gold-fill actually "filled with gold"?
The interesting part is, all the gold is on the outside, strange, right? We are not sure why the industry calls it "gold-filled". The only thing you need to know is that the term refers to a thick outer layer of durable, pressure-bonded, real, solid gold on the outside. No filling.
What's the difference between gold-filled and gold plated?
i. The layer of gold on 14K gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating.
ii. The standards for 14K gold-fill is strictly regulated, while the standards for gold plated are not, so you can't be sure how much gold is in the plated layer.
iii. The gold in gold-filled is attached in a way that's much more durable.
Is 14K gold-filled good quality?
Absolutely! Gold-fill is your best option after solid gold for quality and durability. It will not flake off or rust. The thick outer layer of gold makes it highly durable and safe for people with allergies or sensitive skin.
Is gold-filled jewelry durable? and how long will it last?
After solid gold, Gold filled jewelry is certainly your best quality for gold pieces. We maintained the highest standards in design, materials and craftsmanship, creating jewelry that is meant to be passed down from generation to generation. With some simple, basic care, you can help preserve and protect your jewelry for years to come.
Does gold-filled tarnish?
14k gold-filled are not supposed to tarnish for a long time. It is possible for gold-fill to tarnish under certain circumstances, but it should not tarnish easily.
Will it flake off?
No. With gold-filled jewelry, the process involves mechanically bonding the gold to the core through extreme pressure and heat. It results in a resilient exterior that's not prone to flaking or cracking. Flaking is more common with certain types of gold plating.
Does it Rust?
Nope. It is impossible for gold-filled material to rust.
Do I have to take it off to shower?
Not if you use mild soaps. It can actually be good for cleaning gold-fill jewelry to shower with it on. But, you must make sure that your shampoos and soaps are gentle as certain chemicals can negatively impact the look of the gold. If you are not sure, it is best to take your jewelry off to shower.
How do I take care if it?
The best care you can give your pieces is to clean them gently with water, mild soap, and a soft cloth (eyeglass chamois work great) and only polish them when they really need it.
