What is gold filled? 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 ears.
Care: wear these all day, every day without worry of tarnish or fade! It is recommended to remove before entering saltwater or chlorine pools.
Note: these hoops are open (as pictured), please be careful when moving hair or taking off a mask so it doesn’t get caught in the hoop.
