Austrian Crystal: Leaded crystal that is usually faceted. Generally heavier than other glass beads and often treated with a special finish which results in a "rainbow" when lit from certain directions. The faceting on leaded crystal beads is crisper than on typical cut glass beads, resulting in more sparkle.

Gold Filled: Gold fill consists of a sheet of gold over (and sometimes under as well) a base of another metal, usually brass, copper or steel. The bonding may use a brazing paste or fusion welding to join the metal sandwich into sheet or wire forms. The piece is then rolled or drawn into the final shape. The gold layer may be any karat (14k, 18k, etc.) and should be indicated on the finished item. Filled items typically have a thicker--and therfore more durable--layer of fine metal than plated items.

With multi-stone or multi-metal items, always use the least agressive method recommended to keep your jewelry looking beautiful:

Glass: Glass can chip or crack with high-impact, so avoid subjecting your glass object to too much force. Most glass is easy to clean with almost any household cleaner, but do avoid subjecting coated glass to heat, rubbing or harsh chemicals.

Gold Filled: Although gold-filled coating is thicker than traditional gold-plated metals, gold-filled jewelry should still be cleaned as if it were a plated object. It should not be chemically cleaned or rubbed agressively, because the layer of gold can be removed with agressive treatment. Recommended cleaning of gold-filled jewelry is to use a soft, untreated cloth, preferably one that is designed for jewerly cleaning. Do not use a treated cloth, such as a rouge cloth, as the chemical treatment can remove the gold outer layer.
