What is 14k gold-filled?
Is gold-filled jewelry real gold?
The gold in 14k gold-filled is definitely real. There’s a thick layer of real, solid 14k gold on the outside of a brass core. The 14k gold that’s on the outside of gold-filled is the same gold as you would get from a solid 14k piece.
How much real gold is in gold fill?
Gold-filled jewelry is required to have a minimum of 1/20th (5%) gold by weight. The 5% gold in gold-filled jewelry may not sound like a lot, but it’s all on the outside and it's plenty to keep your jewelry looking great for many years.
How are gold-filled items marked?
14/20 GF or 14k GF mark may be present on gold-filled pieces. Often, handmade gold-filled pieces from smaller companies won't be marked, however. For example, we don’t mark our rings and some of our other pieces, but we do have a mark on our chains (at the clasp).
How do I take care of my jewelry?
Always store your jewelry pieces individually, preferably in your soft-lined box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch or tangle. Particular care should be taken with gemstones to ensure that they do not knock against one another when stored. Also remember to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.
Living in a humid environment? Store your jewelry with a small packet of desiccant crystals to help reduce tarnishing.
Your gold vermeil and silver jewelry should be kept in a dark, cool and dry place. With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewelry in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when it is not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation.The oxidation process is also slowed down by wearing your jewelry often. If however your jewelry is stored for long-periods of time, occasional cleaning is recommended to maintain shine and keep oxidation at bay.
Your jewelry is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant.
Do not keep jewelry in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their colour. Amethyst, rose quartz, chalcedony and smokey quartz are just some of the gemstones that can become paler from exposure to sunlight.
