Q. What kind of jewelry findings (Earring Components, Clasps, Jump Rings,Head pins, chains, Jewelry wire...) do we use?
A. Usually we use 14k/20Gold-filled jewelry components made in USA, Italy and Israel.
14k/20 Gold-filled is a durable metal that lasts longer than gold-plated and is less expensive than solid gold jewelry.
Gold-filled jewelry is made from components that have a layer of gold that is mechanically bonded with heat and pressure to another material, usually a base metal which is most commonly brass. Gold-filled products are resistant to tarnishing because the outside layer is actually gold and is thick enough to prevent oxidation of the inner material.
Under FTC regulations, the purity (karat) of the gold content must be part of the marking or designation. As an example, a piece of gold-filled jewelry made with 14 karat gold filled could be stamped 14/20 As an example, a piece of gold-filled jewelry made with 14 karat gold filled could be stamped 14/20.
