What is "Gold Filled"?
As you've noticed, our gold and rose gold rings and spinners are called "gold filled" on our site.
So? What is it?
Well. gold filled wire is not, in fact, filled with gold. That would be too easy. Here's how our friends at Lat & Lo describe it:Gold-filled is constructed in two or three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. A gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight.
