Know Gold Filled
What you should know about Gold Filled Jewelry
What is it:
There happens to be an actual layer of gold that is pressure bonded to another metal -- brass, sterling silver or rhodium. Gold filled jewelry hs literally 100% more gold than 'gold plated' making it of course more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Truth be known, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold which currently is selling at over $1,300 an ounce.
A word about caring for the product:
Caring for gold filled items is the same as caring for any gold jewelry. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly soapy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth.
