10k GOLD HARDWARE
10k Gold 1420 is an actual layer of 10 karat gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold-filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold-filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colours. Eeven with daily wear, can last three to 8 years but will eventually wear through. Gold-filled items are 50 to 100 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 17 to 25 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate
The main advantages of titanium steel are that it is resistant to rust and corrosion; it has an extremely high strength-to-density ratio; and it is hypoallergenic.
