What does Gold-filled mean?
Gold-filled jewelry means that the material is made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold (usually made with 14k gold) in a mechanical bonding process. Gold purity: 14K is 58%; 24K is 100% pure gold.
If I have allergies to jewelry, will I get an allergic reaction to the material?
Gold filled metal is created by covering a base metal with thick layers of actual gold using heat and pressure. Gold filled findings usually have many layers of gold, creating a virtually hypoallergenic material. These metals are nickel-free and hypo-allergenic for most people, unless you have an extreme allergy and can only wear solid gold. Consult a doctor first if you have severe allergies.
What does Vermeil mean?
Vermeil is a combination of Sterling Silver and Gold commonly used as a component in jewelry. A typical example is Sterling Silver and Gold coated in 18K or 24K Gold.
How do I take care of my Daisteli jewelry?
Gold-filled jewelry: when cared for properly gold-filled jewelry lasts beautifully. It is cared for in the same manner as precious jewelry. The best thing you can do is clean regularly using a bit of warm water, and a soft cloth to dry and shine after.
