14 karat gold filled, unlike plated or vermilion, is a much higher quality and longer lasting metal. It is made up of 14 karat gold tubing, which is then filled with a base metal such as brass. The layer of gold bonds strongly to the brass, so it will not wear off.
Care: 14 karat gold filled is tarnish resistant, like solid 14 karat gold, and is safe for most people with sensitive skin. If needed, wipe with a polishing cloth.
