14 Kt Goldfilled

14 Kt Goldfilled

Ardent Designs uses 14kt gold-filled hooks instead of the minimal quality/thickness (most common) 10 kt goldfilled option. Ardent Designs has gotten its goldfilled hooks from the same reputable dealer since 1998, they are based in the United States and are governed by Federal Trade Commission regulations. Joelyn still personally wears flawless pairs of earrings she made in the start of her jewelry making journey (1996) that have yet to show any signs of age.

14 kt gold-filled wire is made by forming a tube of solid 14kt gold that is "filled" with a base metal.  The exterior of the product, everything you can see or touch, is a solid layer of 14 kt gold. This is why it will not tarnish, chip or wear off.  The gold layer on gold-filled wire is approximately 100,000 times thicker than gold-plate and is bonded with heat and pressure.

For people with sensitivities to cheaper metals, or for people who plan to wear a chosen design often and for many years, Goldfilled is recommened over gold plated. Many people wear our 14 Kt GF earrings who can not wear lesser quality thin 10 Kt filled products. Some people do have a reaction even to goldfilled hooks, and therefor the investment in full 14 KT Yellow or White hooks is also avalible for special order
