A very unusual necklace, combining sterling silver links and stylised silver leaves with gold filled beads. "Gold filled" is a term used to describe the 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 will not rub off. We have used the gold filled beads to provide warm highlights between the silver links to add a contemporary twist to the necklace.
Finished with a lobster clasp and extension chain for ultimate sizing flexibility.
