Gorgeous 18k gold filled stud earrings. The earrings have a large emerald coloured crystal surrounded by small sparkling white cubic zirconia in a flower pattern. They have push on backs for a secure fit. Perfect for the party season or special occasion. They come with a free pouch or can be sent in a black velvet box (for an extra charge).
Gold-filled jewellery means the piece of jewellery is composed of a solid layer of gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight) mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal. The related terms "rolled gold plate" and "gold overlay" may legally be used in some contexts if the layer of gold constitutes less than 5% of the item's weight.
Most high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold, and gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last many years although the layer of gold will eventually wear off exposing the metal underneath. The layer of gold on gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than that produced by gold electroplate.
