Let's talk Gold-filled!
Have you been loving your Gold-filled jewelry, but were unsure about what it actually is? Well, you're in luck because I'm here to help explain! Firstly, Gold-filled is not a plated metal like Vermeil is. Gold-filled is created in a rolling process where the gold is bonded to jewelers’ brass. This means that your Gold-filled jewelry will not chip or fade from wear which is a beautiful thing!
Gold-filled metal is a high-quality product that is also great for sensitive wearers. It has a 5% gold content (gold by weight) which gives it a high-quality look and long-lasting wearability. If you take good care of your Gold-filled jewelry, it can last years looking like the day your first purchased it.
If you've been following my Instagram Reels and this blog, you'll know that Gold-filled won't tarnish either if you take good care of it. Always make sure to put your jewelry on last and take it off first. Keeping your Gold-filled jewelry away from sprays, soaps and other chemicals like perfumes is a must. These can all do harm to your metals and gemstones and make the lifetime of your jewels end quickly.
