Gold Filled Jewelry

Gold-filled jewelry, also known as "rolled gold" or "rolled gold plate" is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. 
Gold-filled jewelry is a reasonably priced, quality alternative to solid gold (Ease your mind about losing expensive jewelry but still makes you stand out in occasions like wedding, parties, etc.).
Gold filled jewelry is not lifetime jewelry, however,  it has longer life than gold plated items as the gold layer is thicker.
