Rolled gold wire, also known as gold filled, is made by forming a tube of gold and filling the tube with a base metal, usually jewellers brass. The gold content is 1/20th of the total wire and for most people, it will last their entire lifetime without showing signs of wear. An example is a ring that is worn 24/7, after about 3 years there will be signs of wearing on the inside of the shank so as you can imagine a pendant will last a lifetime and will often become a heirloom piece of jewellery which can be passed down through the family for generations to come.
There is 100 times more gold in rolled gold (gold filled) than in gold plate, this process dates back to the late 1800's and antique collectors would be well aware that it is not unusual to find old rolled gold pendants that are aged around 75 years!
Rolled gold/gold-filled jewellery offers buyers an affordable, durable choice at a fraction of the cost of solid karat gold. Another thing to consider is that 14kt is a much superior gold to the 9kt gold that is commonly available in Australia. Jewellery stores are now starting to stock 9kt rolled gold pieces of jewellery to offer gold lovers an economical alternative.
A simple inexpensive way to clean rolled gold jewellery is to soak it for a minute or two in a mild solution of ammonia and water or a commercial liquid jewellery cleaner. Rinse the jewellery thoroughly with water afterwards and let dry. You would care for your rolled gold jewellery in the exact same way as you care for your solid gold jewellery taking particular care with the gemstones.
The art of sculpting wire is done entirely by hand and involves the use of some basic jewellery making tools. There is no soldering, welding or gluing and all wire ends are discretely turned under so there are no sharp edges. There may be some imperfections as the pieces are handmade and not produced by a machine which adds to the character and uniqueness of each individual piece. No two pieces are the same, it is near impossible to duplicate the exact same piece due to the twisting and turning of the wires and the shape of the centre piece. As there are no patterns to follow and each design is created by working one wire at a time you can be assured you are buying a totally unique piece of jewellery that you won't find anywhere else.
