Chain: 14K Gold-Filled Jewelry is one step below 14k gold and by far the best material to use for quality and affordability. Gold-filled jewelry involves an outer layer of 14k gold that is pressure-bonded to the brass base metal and contains at least 5% gold by weight. This technique is more durable and provides a longer life span for your pieces with the right care. Gold-filled Jewelry is also safe for customers who may be sensitive to metal. However, please be aware that a small amount of brass is still used in gold-filled jewelry, so customers with this specific metal allergy may have a reaction to it.
Gold-Filled Jewelry is also super low maintenance. Over time, your gold-filled piece still may need some care. We recommend using a wet cloth, gentle brush, or ordinary soap to clean your piece.
Also, we still recommend avoiding contact with the water in the ocean or pool; and lotion, perfume, oils, or similar substances to ensure the longevity of your piece.
Pendant: Gold plated jewelry is made of a thin layer of gold electroplated over brass. Admiral Row chooses materials with the thickest plating, when possible, to ensure durability. However, it is still recommended that you avoid wearing gold plated jewelry in water. Also, try to avoid contact with lotion, perfume, oils, or similar substances to ensure the longevity of the chosen piece.
We recommend that gold plated jewelry be the last item you put on when accessorizing your outfit. At the end of the day, remove your Admiral Row piece and run a soft cloth over it before going to bed. Do not use any polish or soap to clean the jewelry as it could strip the plating. Carefully store your jewelry to avoid tangling and scratches.
