What is Gold-filled?
To make Gold-Filled jewelry, multiple layers of solid gold are permanently pressure-bonded to a core of high-quality jeweler’s brass or sterling silver using extreme heat. FTC industry standards dictate that your piece must be at least 5% solid gold by weight. The result is a thick layer of real gold and a durable, long-lasting product. Gold-filled jewelry is a great alternative to solid gold, as it offers the ideal balance of quality and value without the price tag.
Gold-filled pieces can still tarnish, but it takes special circumstances for that to happen, like excessive and rough use. Even though it’s an alloy (a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements), the thick layer on gold-filled pieces prevents tarnishing, because pure gold doesn’t tarnish.
This type of jewelry is best for everyday wear, meaningful gifts, staple pieces, or for anyone on a low to medium budget who wants long-lasting and timeless pieces.
We mainly use gold-fill materials unless otherwise specified. For more info on the materials we use click here: Understanding Gold Jewelry
