Gold-Filled Jewelry & Care

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Each piece of Cajun Heritage Collection jewelry is handcrafted and requires delicate handling. Please follow our recommended care instructions to ensure the longevity of your piece. 

  • Since oils from our skin can transfer onto jewelry, metal components should be cleaned periodically to maintain brightness. To clean: gently polish with a soft, non-abrasive jewelry cloth and store in jewelry box/bag or an air-tight plastic ziplock bag
  • Do not wear jewelry in the shower, ocean, swimming pools or any other bodies of water
  • Apply lotion, perfume, makeup, and hairspray before putting on your jewelry
  • Remove jewelry when doing household tasks and/or strenuous activities
  • Remove jewelry before bed to prevent scratches or breaking

GOLD FILL JEWELRY

Why do we use Gold-Filled Materials? We use gold-filled chains, metal beads and findings for their incredible durability and likeness to fine gold. It has a very similar appearance to 14K gold jewelry, but without the hefty price tag. Gold-filled jewelry will not flake, peel or rub off. It offers product protection from tarnish and wear, and can withstand natural elements such as heat and moisture. With reasonable care, it should last a lifetime. Can gold-filled jewelry tarnish? Yes, it can, but it takes a rare set of circumstances.  For example,  in rare instances of extreme sulfide exposure the gold-filled can blacken.

Composition: Gold fill is composed of a solid layer of 14 karat gold bonded with heat and pressure to a core metal (such as brass). Gold fill is legally required to contain a minimum 1/20 (5%) of the total weight of the piece. Gold filled jewelry contains significantly more gold than gold-plated jewelry, and is 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating.

PENDANTS & CONNECTORS

To help keep our prices affordable for our customers, our gemstone pendants and connectors are set in a gold-plated setting, not gold-filled. To provide extra durability and protection, we coat all of our gemstone pendants/connectors with a clear impermeable finish. The finish is invisible yet tough, and will protect pendants from tarnish, oxidation and other damaging elements.
