Gold Plated Mixed Metals: Don't shower with gold plated jewelry, apply lotions or perfume with it on, swim or workout in it. Some of our gold plated pieces may contain brass or silver as the base metal.
Gold Filled: Thicker coating of gold. Gold filled items will wear longer than gold plated pieces but still need some love as these items are not 24k solid gold. Use a mild jewelry cleaning solution and run under water and pat dry. Gold filled can still get dull and fade if there is heavy wear, constant perfume/hair chemicals, sea salt water and chlorine are constantly getting on it
