What is Gold Filled?

When you see the term 'Gold Filled' you may wonder what it really means?

Gold Filled (also referred to as Rolled Gold) comprises of a layer of 14kt solid gold bonded onto a base metal - usually brass. This layer of gold is much thicker than that applied in gold-plating.

You may see the term '1/20'. This means the amount of solid gold used is 1/20th of the overall weight of the item.

Gold Filled is very hard wearing and a great alternative to solid gold, offering the same appearance at a more affordable price.
