Gold-filled, or gold overlay, is made by heat and pressure bonding a thin layer of karat gold to a brass (or other base metal) core.
Gold filled jewelry is the highest quality alternative to pure gold jewelry.
Gold Filled is tarnish resistant, can be worn in the sea and shower, and feels wonderful to wear on a daily basis.
The "14/20" notation refers to the industry shorthand describing the resulting material. The first number is the karat purity of the gold used; the second number is the amount, by weight, of gold to the substrate material. "14/20" gold-filled material is made with 14-karat gold and the gold represents 1/20th (or 5%) of the total weight of the material.
• Karat gold covers the brass surface, making it tarnish-resistant.
• The value of gold-filled is greater than gold-plated because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film.
• All of the Skullptress gold-filled products meet federal quality standards.
• Gold-filled jewelry is economical. Your can enjoy the warm tones of gold at a fraction of the cost of pure gold.
