Premium 14K Gold-Filled | Color&Shine Retention > 20yrs | Hypoallergenic
Gold-filled metal is a new kind of metal, being a blend of pure gold and other types of metal. The outer layer of gold filled jewelry consists entirely of pure gold(at least 1/20 in weight). In this aspect, gold filled metal is totally different from gold covered metal. Whereas gold covers tend to wear out with time, the outer layers can easily be scratched off and reveal the non-precious base metal, gold filled jewelry is very durable and has a thick layer of solid gold(20 times thicker than gold-plated) that can never flake off. The gold-covered jewelry are made out of a variety of base metals, those base metals can have harmful effects and cause severe skin allergies. Gold-filled metal, however, is perfectly safe and completely allergy-free. Gold-filled metal can shine for at least decades and is very easy to maintain, and yes, you can even wear them in shower!
