VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE GOLD FILLED JEWELLERY IS NOT GOLD PLATED.
Vintage and Antique gold filled items have a solid layer of gold with an inner metal core which provides durability to your item, as gold is a soft metal. Think of it like a sandwich with solid gold on the front and back and an inner metal core made of silver or brass or other metals.
Victorian pieces are generally unmarked for gold content and hallmarking did not originally take place until after 1907. Even after this time the maker could choose to mark either the piece of jewellery or the box that it came in. Antique and Vintage Gold Filled Jewellery is normally 10kt 12kt or 14kt in gold content.
BE AWARE THE ABOVE EXPLANATION IS FOR VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE GOLD FILL JEWELLERY ONLY AND NOT MODERN MASS PRODUCED ITEMS BEING PRODUCED IN CHINA AND MARKETED AND SOLD AS GOLD FILLED.
THEY ARE NOT!!!!
GOLD FILLED JEWELLERY IS A TERM THAT SHOULD ONLY BE USED FOR VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE ITEMS THAT WERE MADE IN THE USA WHERE THEY WERE REGULATED FOR GOLD CONTENT WHICH BY LAW CANNOT BE ANY LESS THAN 1/20TH OF SOLID GOLD OF THE PIECE.
MODERN JEWELLERY MASQUERADING AS GOLD FILLED IS USUALLY UNMARKED FOR KARAT WEIGHT AND ITS MAKER IS UNREGULATED. THESE ITEMS ARE CHEAP AND INFERIOR GOLD PLATE.
