Is it worth buying gold-filled jewelry?
Gold-filled jewelry is a great economical alternative to solid gold. If taken care of, it can last as long as solid gold and won’t tarnish or rub off. The downside is that if you were to resell your gold-filled jewelry, it would not have as much value as solid gold jewelry.
What is the value of gold-filled jewelry?
Value: Has 5% of the value of solid gold. To be called gold-filled by U.S. law, the plating needs to be very very thick (at least 5% of jewelry total weight). Great to wear (the gold will never wear off!) but bad as an investment (has low re-sale value).
Can you take a shower with gold filled jewelry?
Gold Filled: You are fine to shower in gold-filled jewelry, get it wet, wear it for life! We do recommend you remove it in salt water or chlorine. Wearing it while using basic lotions is fine, but remove it when putting on anything strong- retinol, peels, glycolic acid etc.
Does gold filled turn green?
