What is Gold Filled?
"Gold filled" is constructed in two or three layers. The core metal under the layers is usually jewelers’ brass or a mix of base metals. A gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the core with heat and pressure. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy.
Our Gold-filled items are 14k gold-filled.
