What is gold filled wire? 14kt Gold Filled Wire is a great way to get the look and feel of gold, without the over inflated price. Let me start by saying gold filled should not be confused with gold-plate, which is only a microscopic film of gold that will wear off. 14 kt gold filled, (rolled gold), is composed of a solid layer of 14 kt gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal core such as jewelers brass. It is made up of almost the same mixture of metals (usually a brass alloy) used to bring 24kt gold down to 14kt, 10kt, etc. All gold products I offer meet federal standards for quality and content and are warranted to never tarnish, flake, or wear off under normal use. It does NOT have nickel in it, which usually is the metal that people can be allergic too. Customers seem to like the fact that 14/20 gold-filled jewelry "matches" and wears like their 14k pieces, and love that it is more affordable! All that you see and that touches your skin is 14 karat gold.
