Care of 14Kkt. Rolled Gold Jewelry
Gold Filled was used extensively in the 1800’s and is very strong and durable. It is not "gold plated". It has 100 times the amount of gold than can be found in gold plated. It is created by taking a sheet of 14Kt. Gold, and bonding it through extreme heat and pressure, to a core of semi-precious metal (brass). The end result is a 14kt. tube which is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish because of it's 14kt. gold covering. This gold metal composition is what enables me to create the swirls and curls used in my special designs. This is a very sophisticated process and only a few mills in the world do it. It should not be confused with gold plated.
Just care for it as you would any other jewelry. It is quite durable. A simple inexpensive way to clean rolled gold jewelry (gold-filled) is to soak it for a minute or two in a mild solution of ammonia and water or a commercial liquid jewelry cleaner. Rinse the jewelry thoroughly with water afterwards and let dry. It can also be cleaned with the same polishing cloth that you use for your sterling silver.
