What is Rose Gold Fill?
Rose gold is a gold and copper alloy. Rose Gold Fill is a thick layer of Rose Gold bonded to a brass core. It is different than Rose Gold plate, which is a thin layer of Rose 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.
Rose Gold Fill uses a weight-based requirement: to meet this, it must contain 5% solid Rose 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, Rose Gold Fill can be considered a long-term metal. Because of its cost and durability, Rose Gold Fill is the next best option to solid Rose Gold.
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.
