Gold-filled Jewellery lasts longer than its counterparts, gold plated jewelry included.
When you purchase a gold-filled piece of jewelry, you are buying a substantial layer of gold that has been pressure bonded to a sterling silver or other metal bases. Due to the amount of gold used, these pieces maintain their value and are tarnish resistant.
Unlike gold plating, gold filled is far more resistant to tarnishing. It is a reliable material for use in jewellery as it is made up of two or three layers of solid gold, with minimum 5% in composition to the core metal.
With care your gold-filled jewelry can last anywhere between 10 to 30 years.
Does Gold Filled Copper Tarnish?
Gold filled copper consists of copper as the base metal, layered with gold fill. It behaves like the standard gold filled material. It may or may not tarnish. It all comes down to how you use it. Gold filled copper is tarnish resistant under usual conditions. To make it last longer, avoid direct contact with your everyday products such as sunscreens, hairspray or perfumes. Apply perfume and hairsprays before you put your gold filled copper jewelry on. Keep it clean and moisture free and it will last well up to 15 years.
