14K Gold-filled Jewelry
Gold is a precious metal that becomes more valuable everyday. Not everyone has the budget or the need to purchase solid gold, but 14K gold-filled jewelry is a beautiful alternative. Gold filled jewelry is an actual layer of 14K gold bonded onto another metal, such as brass. 14K gold-filled jewelry should not be confused with gold-plated jewelry, as gold-filled jewelry has a hundred times more gold than gold-plated pieces. Not only is gold-filled jewelry of greater value, but is also tarnish resistant and will not rub off or turn colors.

Our pieces carry the same characteristics of solid gold, such as durability, strength, and beauty – at a fraction of the price. Check out our unique line of handcrafted 14K gold-filled metal jewelry, many embellished with large vibrant faceted gemstones and gemstone beads. From gold-filled earrings to gold-filled cocktail rings set with marquise cut stones, there is sure to be something that all jewelry lovers will adore.

What Is Gold Filled Jewelry?
Gold filled jewelry is a type of fine jewelry that is made to be an economical alternative to traditional solid gold. Precious metal that is labeled as gold filled is actually made up of more than one metal. The top layer that is visible to the eye is gold, while the underlying metal is a less expensive, strong material like brass. Gold filled jewelry is not the same as gold plated jewelry, which has a thin coating of gold over top of an inexpensive metal. The construction of gold filled jewelry gives you significantly more gold, up to 100 times in many cases than gold plated jewelry, and its yellow gold color won't flake off or fade.
What Does 14 Karat Mean?
The term 14-karat refers to the purity of the gold that is bonded to the brass in the gold-filled jewelry. Specifically, 14-karat gold is 58 percent gold and 42 percent alloy metals. The material is an affordable alternative to pure gold, but it also is more durable and much harder than 24-karat pure gold. As a result, the 14-karat gold-filled jewelry pieces in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry Collection are the perfect combination of artistry, style, affordability and durability.
