What is Gold Filled?
Gold filled describes when a layer of gold is mechanically and permanently bonded with heat and pressure to the surface of base metal, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness. You should not confuse this process with gold plaiting. It is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish. Gold Filled will not flake, chip or cause allergies the way silver and gold plate does.
The result is a metal that looks and wears like gold but is much more affordable. Gold filled items will remain gold for a very long time if cared for properly. Gold filled items are very beautiful and look exactly like gold items (unlike gold plate). They should last as long as an equivalent piece gold.
As with every product its life span will depend on the care you give it. These are some helpful hints on how to look after your new Life Locket pieces.
Handle with care & love. The glass on your Life Locket is fragile & can break.
Do not wear in water. Your Life Locket is not waterproof.

Will layered discs and charms scratch my piece?

Are your Interlocking Ring Pendants machine engraved?
No, they are not machine engraved, these pendants are hand stamped with individual metal stamps and a hammer. Lettering alignment may not be perfect and slight scuffing on the back of each ring or disc may be present with these pieces but this only adds to the character of the piece.
Are all items always available?
We do try to have all items available for purchase at all times however there may be times where this is not possible or if some charms become discontinuted.
What do you mean when you say "front facing' and 'back facing' plates?
One plate can face the front and one can face the back. Only one side of each plate can be stamped. It is your choice if you would like 1 or 2 plates or no plates at all. Front plates are typically stamped around the top so that you can see the stamping above the charms. Back plates are stamped from left to right going around the plate. Up to 2 plates can fit inside each locket.
Please note: If you place a lot of charms (8 or more) inside your locket this will cover the stamping on your front plate, so keep this in mind if you would like the stamping visible.
Do I need to have a plate for my locket?
No you don't need to have a plate. Lockets look great without plates too.
