GOLD FILLED is not like gold plated as there is approx. 100 times more gold in gold fill, than there is on plated. Gold filled looks and usually wears as well as karat gold. Gold fill is very hard wearing and should last under normal wear conditions for a lifetime. The technique is a sheet of gold is mechanically applied to the surface of the metal. United States requirements state that gold-filled jewelry must contain no less than 1/20 its weight in gold. Wash with gentle soap and water and dry. No harsh chemicals or rouge cloths are needed to keep gold fill components looking like new.
