About 14k Gold Filled

14k Gold jewelry is fine jewelry. It is a process in which a layer of 14kt gold has been layered and mechanically rolled onto a supportive foundation metal. This is not to be confused with "electroplate". The gold content must conform to U.S. Government Standards. With reasonable care it will last a lifetime. Frequent cleaning with mild soap and water is recommended to maintain its true beauty. Salt water, chlorine in swimming pools, and perspiration take their toll on all fine jewelry. Wipe your jewelry carefully with a soft cloth to keep it clean and free of these elements which oxidize.
