The term ''gold-filled'' carries the same definition as rolled gold. Gold-filled products include manufactured findings and components for jewelry-making as well as finished jewelry items. The metal can be found in sheet as well as wire for use in the metalsmith trade. Gold-filled metal is not adversely affected with proper heat applications and so items can be repaired.
Both rolled gold and gold-filled are by weight, 1/20th of gold with a range of 12Kt to 18Kt. Whether the product is rolled gold or gold-filled, the layer of gold applied is considerably thicker than an electroplated layer, which will wear off in time.
