How to properly take care of your beautiful Gold Filled Jewelry by Quinn Bee Jewelry:
GOLD FILLED JEWELRY: WHAT IS IT?
Gold filled jewelry is a stunning, affordable alternative to solid gold as it has a thick, layer of genuine gold permanently bonded onto the base metal with heat & pressure that contains 100x’s more gold than gold-plated jewelry. It is second to best after solid gold, & can withstand forces, if properly cared for.
It is a durable, yet, stylish accessory for those with an active lifestyle as well. It’s sweat & water resistant so no need to take it off. It will not chip, flake or tarnish. With proper care, each piece will last for YEARS. It can also be worn by people with sensitive skin, as it is 100% hypoallergenic , lead & nickel free.
Enjoy looking fierce, babe.
Unless stated otherwise in the description box, all of our pieces are gold filled. We do however, offer pieces that incorporate Gold Plated. An example of that would be our paperclip custom bar chain, having the bar being gold plated & the chain gold filled. But no worries, everything is stated in every description of our pieces.
Gold plated jewelry consists of a thick layer of gold bonded to a base metal such as brass/ nickel, or in our case, our pieces will usually have a base metal of stainless steel underneath.
Unlike gold filled jewelry, It is recommended to remove all plated jewelry prior to exposure to water or chemicals, as your jewels may tarnish or oxidize.
CLEAN EM’ OFF: HOW TO
To clean your pieces, rinse them under warm water & use a mild soap or soft detergent once you notice your pieces are beginning to dark or becoming dirty. You may also use a soft bristled toothbrush to gently brush at your pieces once they’ve been in the solution. Pat dry, but do not rub. Try to avoid using abrasive fabrics such as towels or clothes to dry your jewelry. A microfiber cloth is gentle, effective & recommended. Once a month if needed, you may use a gold-polishing cloth to maintain the luster & shine of your pieces if you notice any areas looking dull or darkening.
