About 14/20 Yellow Gold-filled
14/20 Yellow Gold-filled or "rolled gold", is created by bonding or "welding" a thin layer of gold to a base metal core. This is achieved by using heat and pressure. USA industry standards require there to be 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. 14/20 Gold-Filled means that item is 1/20 14K gold or more simply put the 14 = karats and the 20 refers to the % of gold in an item. 1/20 = 5% gold. The 1/20 fraction refers to the ratio of the 14 karat gold layer to the base metal (brass) layer by weight, which is 5%.
14k Gold Fill has ± 100 times more gold than a gold plated item. The gold layer found on 14K Gold filled items is usually 50-100 times thicker than what is found on a gold plated item.
Gold Filled jewelry is tough and if properly taken care of it should last a lifetime.
