UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOLLOW GOLD AND SOLID GOLD
Solid Gold: refers to jewelry or items made entirely of gold throughout their entire structure. It contains no cavities or hollow spaces. Solid gold items are crafted from a single piece of pure gold or a gold alloy, which is a mixture of gold and other metals. The purity of solid gold is measured in karats (e.g., 24K, 18K, 14K), with 24K being the purest form of gold.
Hollow Gold: refers to jewelry or items that are constructed with a hollow interior. They may appear solid from the outside, but the inside is empty or filled with a lightweight filler material. Hollow gold items are made by creating a shell or framework of gold, which is then reinforced or filled to maintain the shape and structure. This construction method reduces the amount of gold used in the piece, making it lighter and more affordable compared to solid gold.
How to care for and clean your solid gold jewelry?
Avoid abrasive cleaning agents such as bleach or other household chemicals. Soak in warm water with a little bit of dawn dish soap. Use micro fiber cloth or jewelry cleaning cloth, avoid paper towels or other non-micro fiber cloths as it can cause micro-scratches. Avoid regular soap, chlorine, hairspray, cologne etc
