what is gold filled jewelry?
Wikipedia says it best:
"Gold-filled jewelry is jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight) mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal. The related terms "rolled gold plate" and "gold overlay" may legally be used in some contexts if the layer of gold constitutes less than 5% of the item's weight. Most high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold, and gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last 10 to 30 years though the layer of gold will eventually wear off exposing the metal underneath"
With proper care, your gold filled jewelry will look like new for years. We hear from our past clients that they still wear our designs from 10 years ago! Not all gold filled jewelry is created equal- our gold filled components are of the highest quality and sourced with care.
How to care for your Gold Filled jewelry?
With a little TLC, your gold filled jewelry can look brand new for years!
When not worn, store with care: All August Eighth Jewelry will be shipped with a tarnish resistant pouch. These little bags are great for storage and travel.
Give it a little bath: To remove grease and grime from regular wear, wash your jewelry with a mild dish detergent and a soft cloth or brush.
Can I shower with my Jewelry or wear it in the pool? If you want your gold filled jewelry to stay looking new for years to come, it's not recommended to shower with or wear your jewelry to the beach/pool. That being said, jewelry is meant to be worn and loved. If you do wear it in the pool or the ocean, be sure to immediately rinse with fresh water. If you wear your pieces every day and never take them off, just know that they might darken up quicker than if you didn't.
