>>>>>>>>>> What is Gold-Filled ? <<<<<<<<<<
Gold-Filled comprises a solid brass core over which 14k gold is mechanically bonded using heat and pressure.
The difference between Gold-Filled and Gold-Plated is the amount of gold used over the brass core. Gold-filled items must contain, by law, 5% or 1/20 of gold by weight. On the contrary, Gold-Plated items usually contain only a microscopic amount of gold and therefore the gold layer on Gold-Plated items can peel or flake very easily exposing the brass core underneath.
Because the gold layer on Gold-Filled items is so much thicker it will not peel or flake and lasts for years, yay!
>>>>>>>>>> Care tips <<<<<<<<<<
Very little tarnishing will be observed in 14k Gold-Filled, and it may take years before discolouration occurs.
The most common causes of tarnishing are: oxidation, exposure to sulfur, differing body chemistries and exposure to perfume, hairspray, cleaning agents etc.
So... all jewellery should be taken off before showering/swimming/exercising!
Taking care of your jewellery and proper storage are the best methods to avoid tarnishing.
The earrings will be shipped in a Kraft gift box (see pictures) - a perfect way to give them as a gift or to store it!
