WHAT IS GOLD FILLED (GF)?

Gold filled is a metal combination that has a solid gold surface and contains 5% gold by weight. The rest is “filled” with other metals like brass or copper.  

METAL SENSITIVITIES
Since the surface of gold filled jewelry is solid gold, this type of jewelry is ideal for those who are sensitive to certain metals like nickel.

DURABILITY & LONGEVITY
Gold filled jewelry can be worn daily - and even in the shower - without fading or tarnishing.  With the look of solid gold, gold filled jewelry can last for decades and even a lifetime.
