Gold filled metal refers to a paper-thin sheet of brass sandwiched between two thick layers of 14 karat gold. Gold filled (or “rolled gold”) is an extremely high quality alternative to karat gold. It’s 300% thicker than vermeil or gold-plating and provides the “look and feel” of karat gold at a far more reasonable price.
Your gold filled jewelry should retain its beautiful luster without any special care. But, if your favorite piece needs a little brush-up, you can regularly wipe your jewelry clean with a soft polishing cloth to restore its shine. Many of our pieces are hand treated with tiny glass beads to create our jewelry’s patterns, so never use an abrasive material for cleaning.
