14k gold filled jewelry:
Almost all of our jewelry is 14k gold filled and most of our stones are set in 24k gold vermeil (24k gold over sterling silver base).
Gold vermeil and gold filled is a high quality alternative to solid gold. Gold filled is a thin layer of gold that is bonded to brass through heat and high pressure. Gold filled is much higher quality than gold plating and is tarnish resistant, if you take proper care of your jewelry. It is more affordable and also safe for people with sensitive skin.
To maintain the quality of your jewelry, please be sure to avoid water, perfumes, and any other harsh chemicals from coming in direct contact with your jewelry. It's also best to store your jewelry in a cool, dry place. We recommend storing it in our C.Henry box or pouch. To clean your gold plated or gold filled jewelry, use a soft non-abrasive cloth and gently wipe the jewelry.
