Length: 8 inches but is fully adjustable in length and very versatile.
Gold-filled: also called rolled-gold. These jewelry items are not actually filled with gold. They are made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical process. Effectively a thick coat of gold: the gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total weight. Gold-filled items are used for your top-of-the-line jewelry. Made with 14 kt gold, it is hard wearing. With reasonable care it will not peel or flake, and should last as long as solid 14 kt gold. It is safe to wear for with most people who have sensitive skin.
Care of Gold-filled jewelry.
The same agents that cause tarnish on silver will tarnish gold-filled jewelry but at a much slower rate. Keeping the jewelry in the ‘anti-tarnish’ bag provided will protect it very well. A because gold is quite a soft metal, care should be taken to avoid scratching. Cleaning can be done using a soft polishing cloth – but please do not use brushes or abrasives.
Please remember that Gold jewelry reacts with chlorine so you should never take your gold jewelry into a swimming pool or spa.
