What is Gold Filled Jewelry?
Gold filled jewelry is an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable. Anyone that can wear gold, can wear gold filled jewelry without worries of an allergic reaction.
Gold-filled items are generally considered life time products and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will with gold-plated products. Gold-filled jewelry is often called "the wave of the future" because it offers all the same characteristics as solid gold such as strength, durability and beauty, but at a fraction of the cost! All jewelry comes with Jewelry Care Instructions.
