What is Gold-Filled? Gold-filled metal is constructed in two or three layers through a process of bonding gold to a base metal. Gold-filled metal is legally required to be 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is described by the karatage of the gold alloy on the surface.
14k Gold-Filled is great for everyday wear; it does not tarnish easily and is hypoallergenic. The process by which Gold-Filled metal is made makes it a sturdy option that won't chip or peel. The multiple thick layers of Gold gives the earrings not only their beautiful gold color, but durability to be able to wear everyday.
You often never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water. A quick rub of baking soda on the surface can also shine them right up!
