Sparkling Herkimer diamond points wrapped on 14KGF handcrafted hoops
one of a kind
The gold in 14k gold-filled is definitely real. There's a thick layer of real, solid 14k gold on the outside of a silver core. The 14k gold that's on the outside of gold-filled is the same gold as you would get from a solid 14k piece but at a much more affordable. It is not electroplated.
Although a gold filled piece of jewelry is not sold gold, it has the same desirable properties and look of solid gold. ... It won't tarnish and will not rub off or turn colors. Wearers who are sensitive to certain metals can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction.
