Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of 10-18k gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight) mechanically bonded to jewelers’ brass as base metal. This bonding process reduces tarnishing by up to 10 times compared to a regular-plated metal. Our pieces can last an exceptionally long time if you have a normal pH and avoid contact with harsh chemicals. We recommend staying away from lotions, perfume, and chlorine for a very lasting jewelry piece, as it is not solid gold.
