As the owner of a permanent jewelry business in New Jersey, I make sure to give my customers the best product and service. One thing that’s very important to me is using high quality materials. That’s why I use 14k gold-filled chains for my permanent jewelry.

How Are 14k Gold Filled Chains Made?

14k Gold filled has a distinct layer of gold and the core is made from jewelers brass. The gold is then bonded to the surface of the brass using heat and pressure. This is a permanent bond so the gold won’t flake, peel or fall off.

By law, the total weight of a gold filled item must contain 5% (or 1/20) of gold. If it contains less than 5%, it cannot legally be called gold filled. For comparison, the total amount of gold a gold plated item usually has is under 0.05% of the overall weight of the product.

14k gold is a popular choice for jewelry because it offers a good balance of durability, affordability, and appearance. It is more durable than gold plated, but it is also less expensive than 14k gold while still maintaining that rich yellow color that is appealing to many people.
