Something about Gold Vermeil jewelry
What is Gold Filled?
Gold filled comprises a solid brass (copper and zinc) core over which gold is mechanically bonded using heat and pressure. Gold filled items must contain, by law, 5% or 1/20 of gold by weight. The gold used is generally 12K or 14K, and all the gold fill components we use at Boho Beau are 14K gold filled.
Will Gold Filled wear off?
Gold Filled is the best alternative to solid gold which means it's extremely durable and your gold filled jewellery can last a lifetime if you take care of it properly!
However, the harsh truth is, apart from 24 carat gold, all fine metal will tarnish over time. So we still strongly recommend you to remove it in salt water and avoid any contact with harsh chemicals or perfumes.
How to take care of my gold filled jewellery?
As we mentioned above, please store your jewellery away from the chemicals, perfumes, lotions, etc, these things have potential to oxidise your jewellery. If the jewellery has been exposed to these things, please pad it dry with soft cloth or the polish cloth that comes with your order.
