Pretty earrings combining sterling silver and gold filled beads designed to match our lovely necklace and bracelet. "Gold filled" describes jewellery that has been treated by a process which bonds a thick layer of gold to another metal. To be called gold filled, by law, the gold must be 10 karats or above and it must be at least 5% of the total weight of the bead. This means it is far more expensive, and far superior to gold plating which is just base metal dipped in a solution with a tiny % of gold in it, that chemically bonds to the other metal creating a microscopically thin gold layer which over a relatively short period of time rubs off with wear. Gold filled beads will not tarnish and the gold rub will not off.
