*Gold-filled jewelry is much more durable than gold-plated jewelry. The 14k gold-filled jewelry in this collection is composed of a base metal (brass) bonded with a layer of 14k gold over top. It contains 5% gold of the item's weight. Even with daily wear, could last 10 to 30 years before exposing the metal underneath. The gold layer is 5 to 10 times thicker than an item with regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than an electroplated piece.
