This is a dainty necklace great for regular wear and a variety of ages. Gold-filled means you don’t have to deal with tarnishing, much like purer gold.
Manually – not computer – engraved (not to be mistaken for hand-stamping).
This necklace contains a 12mm 14kt gold-filled disk that I will manually engrave with a daisy flower design at time of order. Choice of a letter charm also engraved at time of order. 4 different colors of freshwater pearls are available, and lastly 4 different lengths of chain to choose from.
What is gold-filled? The easiest way to describe it, is layers of brass and gold sandwiched together. These layers are bonded (clad) together with extreme heat and pressure. The result is a very durable product that has all the benefits of karat gold without the hefty price tag. The top gold layer does not chip or flake like gold plated items which has a minuscule amount of gold covering. I use 14kt gold-filled components.
