This is a c1930s Filigree 14k Yellow Gold filled with White Gold Gold Accents & Orange Garnet Necklace.

Wow. This is so pretty. The claw set multi faceted Orange Garnet Stone (untested and sold as is) is set in the centre of an oval filigree pendant and attached to the chain with an intricate filigree matching bail. The clasp is signed 14k gf c clasp and has the makers make that looks like nc or mc and 14k gf on the attachment tag. I do not recognize this maker however the necklace was purchased from a USA Estate Sale and would have been made in America.

The pendant with the stone and the bail drape beautifully down the neck. From the highest poinst of the filigree bail to the bottom of the pendant is 3.5cms. The chain is 53cms long or just under 21 inches.

This is a one off piece. The colour of the stone and its sparkle is so outstanding and being offet by the white gold (solid) accents makes it just fabulous. Weighs 3.1gm.

Very special gift that you wont find again.

All measurements and weights are approimate only.

What is Antique and Vintage Gold Filled Jewellery

Vintage Gold fill is an actual layer of gold which has been pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating. Vintage Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction.

Vintage Gold filled jewellery is made from solid gold and filled with other alloys such as brass, bronze and sterling silver. Think of it like a sandwich with solid gold on the outside and a metal filling. Vintage Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold.

Antique and Vintage “Gold Filled” jewellery is a term that should only be used for items that were made in the USA and if you are unsure you should ask your seller its origin. Vintage and Antique gold filled items were regulated by the US government and the gold content must be at least 1/20 of the weight of the item. Unfortunately the term gold filled has been hijacked and become generic and is being misused for cheap gold plate jewellery from Asia. Gold plate has no regulations. Vintage Gold Fill does not wear off like gold plate. Vintage Gold filled jewellery even offers more than solid gold such as strength and durability because of the inner metal core as solid gold is a soft metal and tends to dent and bend.

Please also be aware that Victorian gold filled pieces are generally unmarked for gold content and hallmarking in the USA did not generally happen until after 1907. Even then the maker could choose to mark the jewellery or the bo that it came in so that many pieces are not hallmarked with their gold content. Antique and Vintage gold filled jewellery is normally 10k, 12k, or 14k in gold content. Beware of the newer cheap imitations being marketed as gold filled which are in fact imported from Asia. They are not vintage or antique. They are not gold filled. They are cheap gold plate imitations. The term “gold filled” is being misused by unscrupulous sellers
