How Our 14kt Gold Filled Jewelry Is Made
Historically, 'gold-filled' meant that a tube of solid gold was hollowed out, and filled with a less valuable metal like bronze. This way, the appearance and durability was that of gold, while the bronze gave the piece its weight and strength. The external gold case allowed the entire piece to be treated as if it were completely made of solid gold. Through the ages, humanity has learned that gold filled jewelry lasts just as long as solid gold jewelry, as long as it is cared for.
Our gold filled jewelry consists of a brass, color matching core, encased in a thick layer of recycled 14kt gold, which has been applied to said core under extreme pressure and heat. Thus, creating a beautiful and strong bonded product! This thick layer of gold is not to be confused with gold plating, which is only 1/20 the thickness of the bonded gold layer in gold filled jewelry. FBWL's 14kt gold won't rub off. It's not going anywhere.
Our 14kt gold filled jewelry gives you the look, weight, feel, and longevity of solid gold jewelry. Since gold is naturally hypoallergenic and chemically inert, FBWL's gold pieces don't tarnish. They're also perfect for those of us who are sensitive to less precious metals, like nickel, cobalt, zinc, and chromium. With FBWL jewelry, only thick, solid gold is pressed against your skin. And, unlike gold plated jewelry, you can wear your favorite FBWL 14kt gold filled pieces as often as you'd like, without worrying about the gold fading or wearing away!
