Gold Filled

Gold filled uses a karat gold overlay which is then bonded to a brass inner core. Beadspoint, Inc., manufactures gold filled with1/20th 14 karat gold, meaning, it is 5% 14 karat gold by weight with a brass inner core. We offer 1/20 14K rose gold filled and 1/20 14K yellow gold filled.

Conversion Grid to Estimate an Item Weight in Different Metals

To use this grid, locate intersection of desired metal and present metal. This number is your conversion factor. Multiply that number by actual known weight of present metal, e.g., to determine what an item that weighs 1.50 dwt in Sterling would weigh in 14K Yellow, go to 14K Yellow under Desired Metal column. Follow that row across until it intersects the Sterling column. This is your conversion factor (in this case 1.248). Then multiply that number 1.248 (conversion factor) by 1.5 (known weight) = 1.872 dwt. This would be the weight for the 14K Yellow item.
