14k gold filled jewelry is the hot trend right now. Should you treat it just like regular 14k gold? The simple answer is no. Although it does have real gold on it, you need to clean it without harsh chemicals. Below you will find simple instructions on caring for your 14k gold filled jewelry.
-14k Gold Filled care: Do not use a chemical jewelry cleaner or treated cloths. 14k gold filled products are resistant to tarnishing because the outside layer is actually real gold and is thick enough to prevent oxidation of the inner material. We recommend minimizing exposure to moisture and chemicals such as perfumes, salt water and chlorine in swimming pools as they take their toll on fine jewelry. Use mild liquid dish soap (the best is the blue Dawn) and water to remove oil build up, then dry it thoroughly with a clean soft cloth.
-Chain care: For 14k gold filled the above information would apply to the chain as well. You can lightly use a polishing cloth but the more you use the more gold you are removing.
