What is 14k Gold Filled?
14k Gold Filled
Gold Filled is made from solid “gold” and “filled” with other alloys. Gold Filled wears like solid gold because its outer surface is solid gold. Electroplating is NOT a part of this process. Gold Filled is created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of Karat Gold to copper, brass, or some other base metal.
Gold Filled is guaranteed to last for many years, and is hypoallergenic. If you can wear 14k gold, you should have no problem wearing Gold Filled.

Pure silver, also called fine silver, is relatively soft, very malleable, and easily damaged so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The most popular of these alloys is sterling silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper.
