What is 14 Karat Gold Fill?
Gold Fill is a thick layer of gold bonded to a brass core. It is different than Gold Plated, which is a thin layer of Gold that is plated over a base metal. Plating varies in quality and thickness and isn't always ideal for some designs as it tends to wear off in high-friction areas.
Gold Fill uses a weight-based requirement of gold. The requirement of Gold-Fill is that it contains 5% solid gold of the item's total weight. Due to the bonding method of pressure and heat, this amazing metal can withstand hammering, texturizing, and forming. Though it can naturally darken over time, it can be easily re-polished and with proper care, Gold-Fill can be considered a long-term metal. Because of its cost and durability, Gold Fill is the next best option to solid gold.
How do I care for my Ear Climbers and can they be cleaned?
Your Filigree Ear Climbers can be easily cleaned. When not being worn, keep your jewellery in an airtight bag or container. This will help prevent early tarnishing. If tarnishing does occur, you may use a polishing cloth on the metal, or a mild soap with warm water and a soft toothbrush. Our complete care instructions can be found here:
Can I bend the metal without it breaking?
To put the Filigree Ear Climbers on, we suggest gently opening them up (slightly) first to allow them to be inserted into the piercing at the right angle. Once they are in and rotated onto the lobe, you can gently squeeze them to secure their placement. This design is made with a continuous piece of metal, instead of a fused joint that may weaken over time. They should not break by gently opening them slightly.
