What Is gold-filled? Gold-filled jewelry, also known as "rolled gold" or "rolled gold plate" is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. Some high quality gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last five to 30 years but will eventually wear through. The gold layer on gold-plated jewelry varies greatly depending on the manufacturer, so there is no single simple comparison. Gold-filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating.
Your gold filled jewelry should retain its beautiful luster without any special care. But, if your favorite piece needs a little brush-up, you can regularly wipe your jewelry clean with a soft polishing cloth to restore its shine.
What is Sterling Silver? We use only the highest quality, 925 (92.5%) sterling silver, a standard for the jewelry industry.
Tarnishing, or a darkening of the metal's surface, is more likely to occur when the silver is not used frequently. To minimize tarnish, store your jewelry in a dry area. Wiping off your sterling silver jewelry after you wear it will eliminate any lotion, perfume, or makeup that may have transferred from your skin, and will help to prevent tarnishing.
