WHAT’S GOLD FILLED/FILL? Waterproof
• Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold (requires at least 1/20th or 5% of its weight) bonded to a base of some metals. Gold-filled jewelry can naturally tarnish over time, however, it is more tarnish-resistant than gold plated jewelry, and with good care, they can be worn daily and last for years.
All our designer reworkers are authentic and ethically sourced. Each piece is cleaned and turned into a pendant attached to a high quality gold filled chain.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR JEWELRY
Why Does Jewelry Tarnish?
Environmental factors like pollution and humidity are also major players in tarnished jewelry. Depending on which metals are alloyed, some pieces of jewelry can be more reactive than others. You might have heard the term oxidization before - that’s the chemical reaction that happens when certain metals are exposed to oxygen in the atmosphere. In other words, even air plays a part in tarnishing jewelry, and that’s a pretty tough one to avoid.
Storage & Preservation
Don’t wear your metal jewelry in the shower or swimming. Water can be very harsh on metals.
Avoid storing brass and gold-plated jewelry in the bathroom or humid environments. Humidity is very bad for metals and will cause them to tarnish.
To store your metal jewelry, wrap each piece in soft fabric and store in an airtight bag. Try to store each piece separately so that different materials don’t scratch one another.
Cleaning Your Jewelry
We suggest using either a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner or mild soap and water on your metal jewelry. Always make sure to wipe off with water and dry your jewelry completely after cleaning.
Do not use any products that contain alcohol, this can ruin the finish.
If your jewelry is really tarnished, you can use a mix of baking soda, lemon juice and water. Scrub it on with a soft cloth or toothbrush, wipe off, and dry.
After cleaning, you can buff your jewelry with a soft cloth to give it a nice finish.
