12. What is 14ct Rolled Gold?

Rolled Gold or Gold Filled is an actual layer of pure gold pressure-bonded ('Rolled') to the core metal. Rolled Gold is not to be confused with gold plating or Vermeil as Rolled Gold literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Rolled Gold is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colours.
