A beaded pearl necklace made using freshwater pearls, finished with a statement gold filled toggle. Wear with a hint of gold in the centre or turn the piece around for a simple string of pearls.
What does gold filled mean?
Gold plated jewellery has a thin layer of gold over brass (under 0.05%), which is not mechanically bonded and is therefore prone to eventually wearing off. In comparison, gold filled means that there is a thick layer of gold (always over 5%) which has been mechanically bonded to a brass core. Due to this permanent bond, gold filled jewellery can last a lifetime when looked after properly, therefore making it a far more affordable alternative to solid gold jewellery!
How to care for your gold filled jewellery:
As with solid gold, your gold filled piece will need cleaning every now and again.
- Simply fill a small dish with warm water and mild washing up liquid
- Place your jewellery inside and leave for 5 minutes.
- Gently scrub your piece with a soft toothbrush, particularly around the gemstones where residue may have built up.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to each piece being handmade to order, please allow 3 weeks for your jewellery to be dispatched
