Gold-filled refers to the manufacturing process in which a sheet of base metal, usually brass, is mechanically bonded with thinner sheets of gold. A "sandwich" is formed by mechanically bonding a layer of gold on both sides of brass. This "sandwich" is then cold worked by rolling until a much thinner gauge metal is achieved. Products are then formed or die-struck from this layered material.
When a layer of gold is affixed on all surfaces by any mechanical means and the weight of the gold is a minimum of 1/20 of the total weight of the metal in the piece of jewellery
Earring and ear care - earrings should be removed from ears on a regular basis and cleaned using mild soap and water (blue Dawn dish soap works great on sterling silver). Leave earrings to dry completely before reinserting into ears.
Clean skin around ear holes and any build up inside earring holes to prevent bacteria It is only recommended that newly pierced ears have earrings left in overnight to prevent holes from closing.
