Gold filled jewelry

We're here to tell you everything about this material

What is Gold Filled ?

Gold-filled is an industry standard coming from the United States. It’s a strictly regulated process that involves pressure bonding of solid 14k gold with extreme heat over a core of jeweler’s brass resulting in a durable and quality product.

Unlike plated metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% of solid gold by weight, in this way there is 50 to 100 times more Solid Gold in a Gold-filled product than in a Gold Plated one.

Gold-filled jewelry is required to have a minimum of  5% gold by weight.  The 5% gold in Gold-fill 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.

Gold filled jewelry can be identify with mark present on Gold filled pieces such as 14/20 GF or 14k GF. Much of the time we can see it on chain clasp, earrings backs and inside rings. However, it’s possible that handmade Gold-fill pieces from smaller companies won’t be marked.

Gold filled and Gold fill are the same thing. The terms are often used interchangeably, although “Gold-filled” is officially preferred.  

Apply a dab of toothpaste on the jewellery and softly rub with your hands. Rinse with cold water then dry with a tissue until completely dry.
