What is Antique and Vintage Gold Filled Jewelry?
Vintage Gold fill is a layer of gold which has been pressure bonded to another metal. Vintage Gold filled jewelery should not be confused with gold plating. Vintage Gold filled jewelry is much more valuable and a great alternative to the more expensive solid gold. Unlike gold plated jewellery, vintage and antique gold filled jewelry does not flake, rub off or turn different colors. If you can wear solid gold jewellery you wear vintage 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 or core. Vintage Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold.
"Gold Filled" jewelry is a term that should only be used for items that were made in the USA and sometimes Canada. Unfortunately the term gold filled has now been hijacked and is being misused for cheap gold plate jewelery from Asia. Gold plate has no regulations and is a thin spray of gold over a metal base which will chip and wear and the base metal is usually a cheap nickel.
