frequently asked questions
q: can i wear my pieces in water?
a: short answer: yes! gold filled pieces are water and tarnish resistant! your pieces will last longer depending on the level of wear and care. every day exposure to water like in the shower and washing dishes is fine for your gold filled pieces. we recommend avoiding harsh chemicals such as chlorine, salt water, perfumes, lotions and soaps as they may alter the gold differently.
q: can you tell me more about what "gold filled" is?
a: gold filled behaves the same as solid gold. it is an legalized standard where 5% (1/20) of gold is bonded over a base metal. gold filled pieces are the most durable and most similar to solid gold. they are water and tarnish resistant and the most affordable option to solid gold. depending on wear and care, it could last a life time.
q: can you tell me more about what "gold vermeil' is?
a: gold vermeil refers to when gold is plated over sterling silver instead of any other base metal. gold vermeil is also a great alternative to solid gold, but since the standard of gold plating is not as strict as gold filled pieces, the gold can wear out sooner than gold filled pieces and we recommend not getting gold vermeil pieces wet, however it again depends on wear and care.
