How To Care For Gold Filled & Sterling Silver Jewellery

We love our collection of FinerRings Jewellery and Peggy and Twig Earrings and we want these pieces to last you a lifetime so here is some additional information on these pieces and how best to care for your jewellery. 

What Is Gold Filled Jewellery?

Gold Filled is a solid layer of gold pressure bonded to a base metal, usually Sterling Silver. This process is not to be confused with Golf Plating, as Gold Filled has 100% more gold content than Gold Plating, making it more valuable, durable and tarnish resistant. 

Caring For Gold Filled Jewellery

Gold Filled Jewellery is perfect for everyday wear due to its quality and durability. It can be worn to bed, whilst showering, swimming and exercising. 

To keep it extra shiny, we recommend cleaning your pieces with a polishing cloth, and always store pieces hanging up or boxed individually, away from dust and dirt.

What Is Sterling Silver Jewellery?

Sterling silver is an alloy, containing additional metals in order to add strength. This is done as pure silver is way too soft to be used in jewellery making. 

Caring For Sterling Silver Jewellery

Wearing your jewellery often is the best way to avoid tarnish, as natural oils in your skin will clean the silver. You can also use a jewellery polishing cloth for a deeper clean. 

Storing your pieces in individual air tight bags with anti-tarnish s trips is a great way to prevent tarnish in your silver pieces when they aren't being worn.
