Gold and rose gold filled are layers of gold pressure bonded to a base metal, typically a jewelers’ brass. It is becoming a very popular alternative to solid gold, because it’s more durable, affordable and versatile for different lifestyles and activities.
To care for your gold and rose gold filled pieces, we suggest removing your jewelry during physical activities such as exercising, gardening, cleaning and swimming, to name a few.
We also suggest you remove your jewelry when applying all types of beauty products, including lotions, perfumes, makeup, hairspray, etc. and avoid prolonged exposure to chlorine, pools, hot tubs or spas.
To polish your piece, avoid using a shirt, towel or even a paper towel or tissue to polish jewelry. This can be abrasive and scratch your gold or rose gold jewelry. We recommend cleaning your piece prior to storing it. Use a generic micro-fiber cloth to remove any oxidation or tarnish marks. You should regularly clean your jewelry using mild soap and water. Pat dry. Do not rub.
Although rare, sometimes individual body chemistries can react with the metal and cause a reaction. Pregnancy, thyroid disorders, hormone levels, medications and more can affect body alkalinity versus acidity, and may cause a reaction with your piece.
