*”Gold-filled” is a U.S.A. industry standard that legally requires 1/20th or 5% pure gold by weight. It is a strictly regulated process that involves pressure bonding multiple layers of sold 14k gold with extreme heat over a core of high quality jeweler’s brass resulting in a durable, quality, real gold product. Because the outer layer of gold is thick, unlike gold-plated, your piece will not tarnish, flake or fade. If one is not allergic to gold, it is unlikely one would get a reaction to gold-filled. While gold-filled remains a less expensive alternative to sold gold, it’s considerable gold content makes it about twice as expensive as sterling silver.
