What is Rolled Gold?

0

Rolled Gold is made from 14k gold that is bonded to other alloys. Rolled gold wears like solid gold because its outer surface is solid gold. Electroplating is NOT a part of this process.Rolled gold offers all the same physical characteristics as solid gold such as beauty, durability, and strength, but at a fraction of the cost.Since the gold is on the outer surface area, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between solid gold and rolled gold.Rolled gold is made by fusing a layer of Karat Gold to a suitable supporting metal (or alloy) using equipment that carefully controls pressure, heat, and time. The bond produced is a permanent one.Gold, along with its other unique qualities, is virtually indestructible. Since you are guaranteed a substantial layer of gold on your rolled gold jewelry by law, with reasonable care it will last a lifetime. It is not costume jewelry. The layer of gold in rolled gold is substantially thicker than the traditional electroplated jewelry.

Rolled gold (also known as gold filled) is a surface ‘veneer’ of precious metal bonded to a base metal alloy. Rolled gold items are more hard wearing than gold plated.
