WHAT IS GOLD-FILLED
Gold-filled is the next level in quality below solid gold. It’s higher quality than gold-plated. Gold-filled jewelry has the same luster and color of solid-gold pieces, but costs less. The process to create gold-filled actually pressure-bonds gold to a base metal.
It’s not to be confused with gold-plated. Plated pieces tarnish, the gold may flake or tarnish, and over time lose their luster. Gold-filled jewelry has none of these drawbacks.
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!
Caring for Gold-filled items is as easy as caring for any gold jewelry. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth.
Michelle Llavona uses only the highest-quality materials in her jewelry.
