Gold is a remarkable precious metal that's been used in jewelry since humans first began adorning themselves. Pure gold is soft, shiny, bright yellow, easily shaped, and does not rust or tarnish. The only yellow metal, its name comes from the Old English word for yellow, 'geolu'.
Gold-filled is defined as a layer of 10kt or better gold mechanically bonded under heat and pressure to another metal, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness. A much more intensive process than simple plating, the quantity of the gold must be at least 1/20th of the item's total weight. The item must be marked as 10, 12 or 14kt gold-filled. Gold-filled items are generally considered lifetime-quality products.
