Small Heart Locket
This adorable necklace is made with a small 13mm brass heart locket that opens to fit 2 small pictures. The chain can be made of either gold plate or gold filled. Gold filled keep it's shine much longer than gold plated chains. I recommend an 18 inch chain that closes with a lobster claw.
Gold plate needs to worn carefully. Avoid putting any products on it such as perfume or sun screen and avoid doing activities that would make you sweat while wearing it. Gold plate cannot be worn in the water. There is a layer of enamel on top of the plating to make it last longer but with gold plate it is very obvious when that layer starts to come off as the base is stainless steel.
Gold Filled: Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold. You can wear it all day everyday with no worries of tarnishing.
