Gold Filled / Gold Plated Jewelry
Gold filled jewelry is composed of a layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal. It is a quality alternative for solid gold and it has 100% more gold than gold plated jewelry.
Gold plated jewelry is composed of a thin layer of gold over a base metal. It requires more care than gold filled jewelry.
To preserve the gold color on your jewelry as long as possible,
1. Keep jewelry clean and dry.
2. Wait until your perfume, lotion, or cream is dry before wearing the jewelry.
3. Remove jewelry before showering, swimming, exercise, etc. The chemicals will react with the color of the jewelry and will cause the jewelry to tarnish quickly.
4. Place the jewelry in a cotton/velvet pouch or jewelry box to avoid scratches, tarnishing, chipping, knots in chains or breakage.
5.Clean jewelry with a soft cloth or cotton ball.
