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.
BEHIND THE NAME:
"Katherine is a woman who inspires me, because through a viral infection attack, her nervous system paralyzed her from the waist down. She completed nursing school and works full time at a major hospital apart from any limitations she has. She is a strong, Christian influence in mine and many others' lives. She has not let her disability hold her back and is highly independent. I'm amazed by her!" -Allison K.
