“ The Eye of Ra is a symbol in ancient Egyptian mythology that functions as a feminine counterpart to the sun god Ra and a violent force that subdues his enemies. The Eye is an extension of Ra's power, equated with the disk of the sun, but it also behaves as an independent entity, which can be personified by a wide variety of Egyptian Goddesses, including Hathor, Sekhmet, Bastet, Wadjet, and Mut. The Eye goddess acts as mother, sibling, consort, and daughter of the sun god. She is his partner in the creative cycle in which he begets the renewed form of himself that is born at dawn.
They eye of Ra meaning holds a deeper symbolism beyond being that of protection and healing. It is made up of six parts, that are associated with the six senses, i.e., touch, taste, hearing, sight, and smell.”

Recommended Steps to Jewelry Care!
It is very important to understand that gold filled requires very gentle care!
This kind of coating disagrees with any prolonged wetness, saltwater, various cosmetics, and chemical substances.
Gold filled jewelry shouldn’t be ever wiped or polished with any coarse fabrics, because you can actually gradually rub off the plating. It won’t happen in one day, but it gradually will remove the gold layer, no matter how thick the gold plating is.
This does happen with gold as well, but because it’s gold throughout the piece of golden jewelry, there is no visible difference except that your jewelry gets slightly thinner over the years. Keep that in mind when taking care of your jewelry.
Traditional gold and silver cleaning methods are not recommended for gold plated surfaces. The best way to clean it is to use a dry chamois or microfiber cloth.
You would need to remove any oils from your jewelry first, by using a cotton ball dampened with a bit of alcohol or vinegar.
You should never try cleaning your jewelry with any abrasive or powder-like substances.
Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold plated jewelry. We recommend putting the jewelry on after! Also, wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your jewelry.
Remove your jewelry when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.
After every use, clean your jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired and to restore shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and clean it with a soft brush. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly!
