scrub it gently with a soft toothbrush using mixed warm water and small amount of mild dish detergent.

The layer of 5% solid gold is permanently bonded with heat and pressure onto the base metal. Gold-filled pieces can still tarnish, but usually from excessive and rough use. Even though it’s an alloy, the thick layer on gold-filled pieces prevents tarnishing, because pure gold doesn’t tarnish. Gold filled jewelry is suitable for everyday wear, just like solid gold.
