Jewelry Facts

Rolled Gold or Gold Filled Jewelry

Gold Filled Jewelry has a SOLID layer of 14K gold and is considered lifetime jewelry!

    14/20 Rolled Gold wire creates high fashion jewelry at a fraction of the cost and is extremely appealing because there has always been a love affair and a fascination with gold.  There is 100 times more gold in 14 kt. Rolled Gold (gold filled) than in gold plate.  A 14/20 Rolled Gold pendant is usually considered a lifetime piece of jewelry.  14/20 Rolled Gold is usually used for pendants, pins, earrings, collars, bracelets, small rings.  I purchase rolls of 14/20 wire for my handmade jewelry.

    When shopping for gold-filled wire jewelry , ask for and get the 14/20 gold-filled rather than the 12/20.  I know 12/20  may be a dollar or so less expensive , but the 14/20 is much more durable and long lasting.
    ( note: I only use 14/20)

You should not mistake Rolled Gold for cheap GOLD PLATING.  In my opinion, gold plated jewelry is junk. There is a very big difference between the two. Gold fill has 100 times the amount of gold as gold plate.  The end result is a solid 14kt. tube , usually with a sterling silver "core" which is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish because of its thick, solid 14 kt. gold covering.  

Jjewelry makers sometimes use the very inferior gold plated wire to keep the costs down, but be mindful that plated jewelry is considered "costume jewelry", as the finish is not long lasting. You can damage it simply by cleaning it!

Gold Fill, or Rolled Gold, is fine jewelry material, and will last a lifetime. 

I use it because a lot more people that can afford a $50 gold filled pair of earrings,  than can afford a $400.00  solid gold pair.

I wanted to create lifetime quality jewelry you would be proud to wear, yet keep it affordable so that everyone could experience the pleasure of owning a unique, custom made piece of jewelry.

Blessings,

Shirley Gordon
