Vintage 12k Gold Filled Goldstone & Gold Ball Necklace and Earrings

The earrings are hallmarked and signed 12k gf Van Dell and the necklace is hallmarked 12k on the clasp.

c1950s-1960s

They are both made of goldstone. Goldstone is a type of glittering glass made in a low-oygen reduing atmosphere. The finished product can take a smooth polish and be carved into beads, figurines or other artifacts suitable for semiprecious stones. It is sometimes known as Adverturine.

I love this stone as it has such a great sparkle and is ideal for both office and evening wear.

The necklace features graduating goldstones balls and gold gf ball spacers. The necklace is 20.5 inches or 52cms long. The beads graduate in size from 2.7 in the centre to 7mm at the ends. The gold spacer beads are 3mm. The earrings are bezel set flat goldstone and are screwback and are 2.5cms in length including the filigree work at the end . I think this is a married set but matches well. Both pieces are in very good vintage condition. The clasp works well.

Unusual and rare vintage jewellery always looks great and always a talking point.

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.
