We always looking for new materials to use to enhance and bring more quality to our Crystal Beads Jewellery, We recently came across some gold that I had not heard of before, Gold Filled.
After doing some research we have found that Gold Filled or Gold Fill is not that well known in the UK. It is imported from America, as there is nothing like it manufactured here in Europe.
14k Gold Fill is not like gold plated, as there is approx 100 times more gold in gold fill, than there is on plated wire. The gold layer is usually 50 to 100 times thicker as compared to what is on a gold plated item. Gold filled looks and usually wears as well as karat gold. Often referred to as rolled gold, Gold Fill is very hard wearing and should last under normal wear conditions it should last a lifetime.
Gold Filled is a great product, and we have used it with our jewellery, and the quality is superb and its reassuring to know that when someone buys any jewellery from us that uses gold filled parts, he customer will be getting value for money and quality jewellery.
