The ultimate flower jewel: a beautiful, fully blossomed rose with a trio of leaves is centered in a cutaway style pendant in the shape of a shield. This antique pendant is made of gold-filled metal and comes complete with an 18” gold-filled cable chain, which fastens with a spring ring style clasp. While the piece is antique it is in very good condition, with a bit of wear from age, but solid and ready for a second lifetime of wear. As William Shakespeare wrote, “The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem / For that sweet odour which doth in it live.”

What is “gold-filled?” Gold-filled jewelry is higher quality than gold-plated and lower cost than solid (alloyed) gold. Typically, gold-filled jewelry is required to have a 1/20th (or 5%) weight in gold (usually 14k,) which is affixed/bonded to all exterior portions of the jewelry item (which usually has a brass, or sometimes copper, core.) Gold-plated jewelry has no such standards and as a result usually involves a much thinner coating of gold. Gold-filled jewelry can last a lifetime without showing signs of wear and makes for excellent and durable everyday-wear pieces.
