14k gold fill is an affordable, quality alternative to 14k gold. Unlike gold plate, which has only a few microns thick layer of actual gold, 14k gold fill has a solid layer of 14k gold bonded to the outside of a base metal. The quality and amount of gold in gold fill jewelry is regulated by the Federal Trade Commission.
With gentle wear and occasional gentle cleaning, 14K gold fill jewelry will maintain its gold surface for many years. Keep your gold fill jewelry looking its best by taking it off at night, and when showering or swimming.
