Goldfilled Findings

 

Goldfilled Findings
Goldfilled (GF) is a legal definition regulated by the Federal Trade Commission.

Goldfilled pieces are made by mechanically applying a layer of 10 or higher karat gold to the surface of a base metal.
(Our goldfilled findings are 12K GF or 14K GF, rather arbitrarily)
The gold part of a goldfilled piece must constitute at least 1/20th (5%) of the weight of the piece.
Goldfilled pieces generally look and wear close to solid karat gold.
