Understanding 14k Gold-Filled Jewelry

What is 14k Gold-Filled?
14k gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of 14k gold mechanically bonded to a base metal, typically brass. This layer of gold constitutes at least 5% of the jewelry's total weight, providing a durable and affordable alternative to solid gold. Gold-filled jewelry has a thicker layer of gold compared to gold-plated items, making it more resistant to tarnishing and wear. With proper care, 14k gold-filled pieces can last a lifetime.

Restoring Its Shine

Cleaning Gold-Filled Jewelry

  • Use a toothpaste that is baking soda-based or warm water with baking soda. Gently scrub the jewelry with a soft toothbrush or cleaning brush. Depending on cleanliness you can leave in for longer. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and soap.
  • Dip for a few seconds in fresh squeezed lemon juice and then thoroughly wash with clean water. dray with a soft cloth
  • Avoid using abrasive materials that could scratch the gold surface.

Precautions for Use

Wear It Regularly
Regular wear can help maintain the beauty of your gold-filled jewelry. However, while 14k gold-filled jewelry is quite durable and resistant to tarnishing, certain precautions can extend its life and keep it looking its best.

Protecting Your Jewelry

Wait After Applying Products
Allow about ten minutes after applying cosmetics or perfumes before putting on your jewelry. This helps protect organic materials like pearls and porous stones from potential damage.

Proper Storage
Store your jewelry in its original box or an individual pouch when not in use to protect it from scratches, humidity, and extreme temperatures. For pearl jewelry, which needs a certain level of moisture to maintain its beauty, store it in a humid environment, such as a bathroom, or near a regularly refilled glass of water.

Handling Damage

Repair Services
If your jewelry becomes damaged (e.g., malfunctioning clasp, worn links, or settings), please bring it to a Goldish store or contact our customer service for an expert appraisal and repair suggestions. See further repair details here.

By following these care recommendations, your Goldish jewelry will continue to sparkle and shine, preserving its beauty and elegance for many years. Thank you for choosing Goldish for your jewelry needs.
