How do I care for my pieces?
Due to the nature of handmade jewelry, careful handling is important. 14kt gold fill jewelry is meant to last forever, however it can appear discoloured if dirty from skin oil, exposure to air, build-up of lotions, chemicals and just daily wear. We recommend to polish your piece every few weeks.
What is Gold filled?
Gold Fill is composed of a solid layer of 14 karat gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass.Strict government regulation mean the gold must make up a minimum of 1/20 of the total weight of the piece. Gold-filled pieces are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating.
Why are my fingers turning black/green?
Typically you will not see discolouration from Gold fill jewelry. That being said some people's skin type are more prone to this issue. This chemical reaction can be caused by a combination of your skin's natural oils and the base metal. Moist or lotioned skin, or people with an acidic imbalance are prone to this reaction.
