made by Filosophy, a black woman owned business based in Brooklyn, New York.
gold filled jewelry has a thicker layer of gold than gold plated jewelry, making it more durable and long lasting.
Majority of Filosophy pieces are 14k gold filled or 24k gold filled. Gold filled pieces are water-safe and can maintain color for up to 2-3 years with good upkeep. This does not mean that they are not 100% tarnish resistant. Gold filled pieces can lose their color if exposed to stripping chemicals. To prolong the wear of your pieces, remove before showering, swimming, etc.
GOLD FILLED: real gold permanently bonded to a base metal, usually brass or sterling silver. (5 microns of gold)
VERMEIL: a layer of gold plating via a firing process over sterling silver. (2.5 microns of gold)
GOLD PLATED: a thin layer of gold plate over a base metal, usually brass, copper, etc. (.5-1 microns of gold)
