what is 14kt gold filled?
14kt gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled has 100% more gold and is much more valuable and resistant to tarnish. the core metal is jewelers’ brass. on top of the brass is a thick layer of 14kt gold pressure bonded to the brass. 14kt gold filled has the same appearance as high carat gold because it is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight.
