Made from 24 Karat Gold Filled. Pendant hangs on a 16" chain.
Each piece is made by hand from Damara Jewelery in Rose Bay, Nova Scotia.
Jewelers create gold filled jewellery by pressure bonding an actual layer of gold to another metal. Although a gold filled piece of jewellery is not sold gold, it has the same desirable properties and look of solid gold.
It won’t tarnish and will not rub off or turn colours. Wearers who are sensitive to certain metals can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction. Although the layer of gold in gold filled pieces varies depending on the manufacturer it is in all cases significantly thicker than regular gold plating (the next category of gold jewellery). Gold filled accessories can be worn even daily without fear of fading or rubbing off for many cases as long as 30 years.
