What is bonded gold jewelry?
BONDED describes jewelry that is composed of a sheet of karat gold, which is mechanically affixed over a sterling silver core. The 10 or 14-karat gold layer is bonded to the sterling silver by a Proprietary Technology of mechanical bonding that uses heat and pressure to form a uniform metallurgical bond changing the two materials into one. Depending on the design, the layer of silver may or may not be visible. All bonded product will have a metal stamp disclosing the fraction of karat gold and sterling silver.
Why is bonded better?
The sterling silver core is covered with a permanent layer of 14 or 10k gold that is not removable. The gold thickness in bonded product is greater than gold-plated product and the gold layer will not wear off as is possible with gold-plated product. Bonded product is very durable and long-lasting if cared for properly.
How to care for you bonded gold jewelry:
External surfaces of bonded jewelry are essentially karat gold, and usually everything that is seen or touched is true karat gold. Therefore, to care for Karat Gold Bonded Jewelry, use the similar processes, as with normal karat gold jewelry, utilizing gold jewelry cleaner and a soft polishing cloth.

About Bonded Gold Jewelry
What is bonded gold jewelry?
Bonded jewelry is composed of a sheet of karat gold, which is fused over a sterling silver core. The gold layer is bonded to the sterling silver through a special mechanical process that uses heat and pressure to form a uniform metallurgical bond, effectively fusing the two layers together. The sterling silver core is covered with a permanent layer of gold that is not removable. Bonded gold jewelry will bear metal stampings of both the gold karatage and of sterling silver.
Why choose bonded gold?
The thickness of the gold layer in bonded products is far greater than in gold-plated products, and the gold layer will not fade or rub off with time and wear, offering more durability than is generally found in gold-plated products. Bonded gold offers the look and beauty of karat gold jewelry at a more accessible price point.
How to care for bonded gold jewelry
External surfaces of bonded jewelry are karat gold and should be cared for like other gold jewelry. Therefore, to care for bonded gold jewelry, simply use gold jewelry cleaner and a soft polishing cloth.
