Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between gold plated and gold filled ?


Gold plating is when a thin layer of gold is used to cover a less expensive metal. Because it is a thin layer of gold it can ware off quite quickly especially if jewelry is worn swimming or in the shower. The amount of gold in gold plated jewelry is so low it is considered to be an "un measurable " amount. Gold filled jewelry is a solid layer of gold pressure bonded to a brass or silver core, it is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. Gold filled jewerly is much stronger than solid gold jewelry which is easily dented and malleable.

How long will my gold filled jewelry last ? Will the gold " rub off " ?


The gold will not "rub off" like it does with gold plated jewelry. You can shower, swim, and sweat in our jewelry without worrying about the color changing. Gold filled jewelry has the potentail to last you a lifetime. The longevity of your pieces depends on how frequently it is worn, how it is cared for and if it comes in prolonged contact with chemicals found in some parfumes and sunscreens. We recomend cleaning your pieces with mild soap periodically to rinse off any lotions, perfumes, etc.




Can I get gold filled jewerly wet ?


Yes ! Feel free to shower, swim and sweat in your jewelry. Please be aware that extensive exposure to chlorine and salt water may dull your pieces.
