What is 14k Gold-Filled?
14k gold filled provides a high end and luxurious feel without the high price tag. Think of 14k gold filled as the greatest, affordable alternative to solid gold. It's durable, long lasting and waterproof because it is made up of a thick layer of solid gold that doesn't break down easily. Wear it in the shower, to the gym, while you travel.
A piece is considered gold filled when it's makeup consists of a thick layer of solid gold covering a base metal, usually brass. Because this layer of solid gold is so thick, it doesn't break down easily. It also doesn't consist of any of the harsh irritants like nickel or lead, so it's safe for the majority of sensitive skin.
How Do I Care for Gold-Filled Jewelry?
Our jewelry is safe to wear in the shower, while you workout, just add it to your already existing life routine! Showering with gentle shampoos and body washes can actually help clean your piece, so no more need to take it off only to forget to put it back on after your shower. When not being worn, we recommend storing your jewelry in an air-tight container, like a ziplock bag.
Please note, with prolonged exposure to chemicals like makeup, skin/haircare, chlorine, hand sanitizer, etc., you may notice your piece darkening a bit. We recommend removing your piece prior to applying chemicals/products of the like to your skin.
