4mm 14K Gold Fill ball stud, lightweight and safe for sensitive ears!
What is gold filled? Think of gold filled as the perfect middle ground between gold plated and solid gold - it doesn't tarnish, and it also doesn't break the bank.
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! For longest wear, remove before entering saltwater or chlorine pools.
