What is "Gold Filled"?

Gold Filled jewellery is composed of a thick layer of solid gold (14ct) permanently bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal – usually brass. The outer gold layer must be at least 1/20 of the overall metal content by weight. It is over 100 times thicker than regular gold plated and is therefore a much thicker and more durable alternative. It has the look, feel and durability of 14ct Gold jewellery, and will not flake or peel, unlike gold plated. Treated with care, Gold filled items can last a lifetime.
