What is special about gold filled?
Gold filled jewelry has a thicker coating of gold around the base material. This allows you to treat your bangle as a solid gold piece without much tarnish or wear. We still recommend treating your bangle with care for longevity and keeping away from lotions or oils for best shine!
Gold filled should remain away from high-sulfur environments. If you live on the Big Island, please store your jewelry in a sealed bag in order to prevent from sulfur-caused tarnishing.
While gold-filled is a superior alternative to gold-plated items, it is not the same as solid gold. Gold-filled items are subject to scratching against hard surfaces, metals, or items it may come in contact with often. You will be able to tell between scratching and tarnishing when your bangle shows silver (scratching) vs. bronze/green (tarnishing). Please take a look at our care guide for best practices for taking care of your jewelry.
