Description and Use

A layer of 18 karat gold alloy with a rich yellow color or 22 karat gold alloy with a bright yellow color is bonded with sterling silver to form a sheet of precious metal with two distinct surfaces. The 18K gold layer is similar to that of most gold filled products while the 22K is two to three times thicker than gold filled products giving it more workability. Surface treatments, such as engraving, scraping, folding, and twisting, can be used to accent the two surfaces.
