Ohzo Jewellery’s Guide to Gold-Filled Jewellery and Charms

Ohzo Jewellery’s Guide to Gold-Filled Jewellery and Charms

From ancient Egypt to Rome, gold jewellery has been one of the most prized possessions since the beginning of time. These are not just mere pieces of elements, but a true symbolism of personal expression, opulence, power, and dignity. 

Even today, gold’s glory remains intact, transcending cultures and borders due to its “royal feel.” You can now find many types of gold jewellery. Of these, gold-filled pieces stand out for their uniqueness, high quality, and affordable prices. 

So, what is gold-filled jewellery? Does it hold the same value as gold pieces? Let’s find out our answers and check out some remarkable gold-filled bracelets, rings, necklaces, and earrings from Ohzo Jewellery. 



Understanding Gold-Filled Jewellery

You may have come across gold-plated jewellery, but gold-filled pieces are a relatively new concept. They may have made you wonder, “Does it mean that the metal is filled with gold? Will the gold wear off eventually? Is it expensive?”

Let's explore gold-filled jewellery in detail to answer all these questions. 

Gold-filled jewellery is also referred to as gold-bonded or gold-rolled. It is designed by bonding gold to a base metal layer. The core metal is usually brass, which is mechanically bonded with gold using pressure and heat. 

Since this bond is pretty solid, the gold doesn't fall off or peel easily. Compared to gold-plated jewellery, gold-filled items have more gold alloy. This makes the coating thick, allowing these pieces to have a long life without any wear or tear. 

In fact, the gold on your gold-filled pieces is almost 15 times or more thicker than found in your gold-plated items. 

However, there is a catch. For an item to be legally recognised as gold-filled, its total weight must contain 5% of gold. If it doesn't, you may have to label it something else. 


Why Choose Gold-Filled Over Other Types of Jewellery?

Gold is expensive. When you invest in a jewellery piece, you desire it to serve you for a long period. 

However, when it comes to gold-plated pieces, you’re usually disappointed in this regard. Their gold layer wears off easily quickly when exposed to air or moisture. 

Fortunately, that's not the case with gold-filled pieces. They have a long life if you take care of them properly, and they aren't affected by water or heat. 

Additionally, gold-filled jewellery is affordable. It features just a fraction of gold but looks the same as pure gold. What's more, hypoallergenic gold-filled jewellery helps minimise any risk of skin infection. That's a plus if you are sensitive to gold. 

Another reason to choose gold-filled jewellery over other forms is its environmental friendliness. When you use this form of piece, you significantly reduce the demand for mined gold. As a result, you play a major role in reducing habitat destruction or harmful mining practices related to gold extraction. 

How is that for a reason to fill your cart with gold-filled jewellery only? Pretty solid!

Factors To Consider When Choosing Your First Gold-filled Jewellery

When picking your first-ever gold-filled pieces, be sure to consider the following factors: 

  • Purity of Gold: Evaluate the caratage of gold. The higher it is, the more valuable the gold is. 
  • Inspect the Seams: Check the seams that help attach the gold layer to the metal. 
  • Wearability: Make sure to assess the wearability of each piece you buy. Some items might be too heavy to wear daily. 
  • Reviews: Even if you pick your jewellery items from the best in town, remember to read customer reviews before spending your money. Website testimonials are a great way to determine whether a brand is worth buying from.

How To Look After Your Gold-filled Pieces? 

Your gold-filled jewellery won't rust or turn green, provided you look after it well. Here are some measures you can take to keep your pieces looking new for years. 

  • Don't wear your jewellery while exercising. Sweat isn't good for gold. 
  • Keep harsh chemicals in hairsprays, sunscreens, and perfumes away from your gold jewellery.
  • To increase the life of your collection, wipe your jewellery using a clean, soft cloth every day. 
  • If you want to deep clean your jewellery, soak the pieces in lukewarm water mixed with mild soap. A good rinse will be enough to make it look spik and span. 
  • To make the sheen last long, dry your pieces carefully before keeping them secure.  

These timeless pieces can be worn with your favourite red dress or black jumpsuit. You can also flaunt them with a saree or other Eastern wear to create a jaw-dropping fashion statement.
