About Gold-Filled Jewelry
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. Some high quality gold-filled pieces have the look, luster, and beauty of 14 karat (58 percent) gold. By definition, the minimum layer of karat gold in an item stamped GF must equal at least 1/20 the weight of the total item. The most common stamp you will find on gold-filled jewelry is 1/20 12kt GF.

The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals--silver, copper, nickel, and zinc--to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer's trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white, and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.

From the Manufacturer
What Is Gold Filled?
Gold Filled is a layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded to a supporting metal. Gold filled jewelry wears and resembles solid gold because the outer layer is 14 karat gold. Gold filled provides a substantially thicker layer of gold than does gold plating, thus making it a durable heirloom-quality piece of jewelry. Maintain your gold-filled jewelry exactly as you would a gold piece, washing it occasionally with soapy water.
Premium Quality Locket
Keep your cherished photos close to your heart with a premium 14K Gold Filled locket. Lockets make the perfect gift for special occasions and are often passed from generation to generation. This heirloom quality locket was designed and manufactured to last for generations.
This locket is manufactured using a machine-made “hidden hinge” and bezel mechanism. The hinge is recessed slightly in to the piece so as not to detract from the aesthetic beauty of the shape. The hinge mechanism also includes the bezel, which is the part of the locket that is designed to hold its pictures. Because this part of the locket is made by precise machinery, the hinges are produced to strict tolerance standards to ensure functionality and durability. The picture holding mechanisms are likewise produced to make the insertion of pictures easier.
Each locket comes with a template that describes how to get personal photos in to the lockets.

Not worth the money spent. The locket dented with in a couple of wears. I wouldn't recommend for the price I paid.Published 6 months ago by d.lammers
The chain started getting dark and gave my neck a rash. Can't be 14k gold, it's either plated or just fake. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Lynn W.
