ABOUT 14k GOLD FILLED:
*Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold
*It is actual layers of gold pressure bonded with other jeweler quality metals. While gold plating can eventually wear off, gold filled is required by law to contain 5% gold (plated is more like .5%) and it’s therefore extremely uncommon to wear through gold filled
*If you can wear gold jewelry without skin sensitivity, you can most likely wear gold filled!
*During the mid to late Victorian period, gold filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers.
