What is 14k Gold-filled Jewelry


What is Gold Filled Jewelry?

Gold filled jewelry is jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the piece’s total weight – excluding any stone or bead) mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or another base metal. In this case, the gold fill is 14 kt.

A far as gold tone jewelry goes, it is an affordable alternative to solid gold in terms of quality and durability. Unlike gold-plated, it will not flake or turn your skin green and is a good option for people with sensitive skin. 

If properly cared for, your gold filled jewelry will last for several years. It is safe to wear in the shower, however, it is recommended that you remove it when in salt or chlorine water. It should not be exposed to harsh chemicals as well as retinol, peels and glycolic acid. Like all your other jewelry, it is important to keep it clean and dry and stored in a dry, dark place (like a canvas bag or a jewelry box) away from direct sunlight.
