14k Gold Filled Jewelry Care:

Gold Filled: like gold, with the proper care, gold filled jewelry should last a reasonably long time and in most cases a lifetime.

Avoid: harsh soaps, heavy detergents and chemicals, chemicals from perfume, salt water, chlorine from pool water, and perspiration to maintain your jewelry's beauty and natural shine; those elements can take its toll on all gold jewelry. Be careful not to snag or pull your jewelry to avoid breaking the chain or jumprings.

To clean: don't use any jewelry cleaners/ cleaning chemicals or cleaning cloths, as many times these cleaners have abrasive and corrosive elements that can damage and alter the color of your jewelry. Do use warm water and a cloth to dry; in some situations using a little light dish detergent and water can help clean build up.
