How Long Does Gold Filled Jewelry Last?

How Long Does Gold Filled Jewelry Last?

So you want to start investing in jewelry that won't tarnish or turn your skin blue but you also want to be budget aware? I got the answer for you!

Gold-filled jewelry is a popular choice for its affordability and durability, offering a luxurious look without the high price tag of solid gold. One of the key advantages of gold-filled pieces is their longevity. With proper care, gold-filled jewelry can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years. This durability is due to the thick layer of gold that is mechanically bonded to a base metal, usually brass. Unlike gold-plated jewelry, which has a very thin layer of gold, gold-filled pieces are much more resistant to tarnish and wear.

To ensure you’re purchasing high-quality gold-filled jewelry, there are a few things to look out for. First, check the gold content. High-quality gold-filled jewelry should have a gold layer that is at least 5% of the item's total weight which Darling & Divines does! 

Another indicator of quality is the craftsmanship. High-quality gold-filled pieces will have smooth, even surfaces with no visible seams or irregularities. They should also come from reputable sellers who provide clear information about the gold content and care instructions. By choosing well-crafted gold-filled jewelry, you can enjoy beautiful, long-lasting pieces that maintain their shine and elegance for many years.
