14k gold-filled jewelry is made with solid 14k gold tubing filled with brass. The gold tubing is 5% of the total weight of the piece. This is known as 14/20 gold-fill. Gold-filled jewelry is very close to solid 14k gold jewelry in that it has the feel and beauty of it.
Gold-filled jewelry has about 100 times more gold than gold-plated jewelry. The outer surface of gold-filled will not flake, peel or wear off, like gold-plated jewelry. With the proper care, it can last a lifetime.
To clean gold-filled jewelry, use a soft cloth or mild soap and water, if necessary. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasives.
