What is 18k Gold fill?
Gold fill, also known as “rolled gold” is 18k gold with a thin center of base metal. It has 100 times more gold than gold plated. Unlike plated, (which is merely a thin layer of gold coating over base metal), gold fill won’t chip, flake off or tarnish. Your skin will never come into contact with the small amount of base metal at the core.
Gold fill is an amazing alternative to solid gold and much higher quality than gold plated.
When cared for properly, gold fill jewelry can last a long time!
-Avoid wearing in water
-Remove before sleeping
-Always put jewelry on after you apply body products and perfumes to avoid excess exposure

-To clean, use a soft jewelry polishing cloth such as a sunshine cloth
A word about Brass:
Over time, brass will develop a weathered look known as a “Patina” which adds to its character & beauty. If you prefer to keep it brighter, you can use a soft polishing cloth.
I put a light brushed finish on my brass to give it a softer semi-matte look.
