Half Moon Layering Necklace in Gold Fill


Gold fill jewelry is a popular alternative to solid gold jewelry, offering the look and feel of solid gold at a more affordable price point. This elegant option is all the rage, and it's not hard to see why. In this blog post, we'll explore everything you need to know about gold fill jewelry and why it's quickly becoming the go-to choice for fashion-forward individuals everywhere.

What is Gold Fill Jewelry?

Gold fill jewelry, also known as gold overlay or rolled gold, is made by bonding a layer of gold to a base metal, typically brass or copper. Unlike gold plating, which only has a thin layer of gold on top, gold fill jewelry has a much thicker layer of gold, typically ranging from 5-10% of the total weight of the item. This results in a high-quality, durable piece of jewelry that looks and feels like solid gold.

Why We Love it?

• A More Accessible Price Point: One of the biggest advantages of gold fill jewelry is its affordability. Since it's not entirely made of gold, it's a more accesible option than solid gold jewelry. This means you can enjoy the look and feel of gold without having to spend a fortune.

• Durability: Gold fill jewelry is incredibly durable. Thanks to the thick layer of gold, it's more resistant to tarnishing, fading, and scratching than other types of jewelry. This means you can wear your gold fill jewelry every day without worrying about it losing its shine or color.

• Hypoallergenic: If you have sensitive skin, you'll be pleased to know that gold fill jewelry is typically hypoallergenic. The base metal used in gold fill jewelry is often copper or brass which are less likely to cause an allergic reaction than other metals like nickel.

• Environmentally-Friendly: Unlike mined gold, gold fill jewelry is often made with recycled gold. This means that by choosing gold fill jewelry, you're supporting sustainable practices and reducing the demand for newly-mined gold.


How to Care for Gold Fill Jewelry

• Clean regularly: Gold fill jewelry should be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and grime. Use a soft cloth and mild soap to gently clean the jewelry, being careful not to scrub too hard.

• Avoid harsh chemicals: Avoid exposing your gold fill jewelry to harsh chemicals like chlorine or bleach. These can cause the gold layer to wear down more quickly, reducing the lifespan of your jewelry.

• Store carefully: When you're not wearing your gold fill jewelry, be sure to store it in a safe place. Ideally, you should keep it in a soft pouch or jewelry box to protect it from scratches or other damage.
