Gold filled jewels consist of a base metal (usually brass or silver) that is covered in sheets of gold. These gold sheets are bonded to a base metal using a mechanical process involving heat. Once this process has taken place you are left with jewelry covered in a thick layer of gold that usually constitutes 5% of its weight.
Gold filled jewelry is resistant to tarnishing & will wear longer than gold plated pieces but still need some love as these items are not 24k solid gold. To clean your gold filled pieces, use a mild jewelry cleaning solution and run under water and pat dry.
*Gold filled can still get dull and fade if there is heavy wear, constant perfume/hair chemicals, sea salt water and chlorine are constantly getting on it.
