14k gold filled hand stamped necklace. 50% of profits from this necklace go towards the Alpha House of Calgary. The Alpha House is a local organization dedicated to supporting at risk men and women in Calgary. Stamped with a mountain range, this symbol is representative overcoming obstacles and challenges as well as being a prominent symbol for Alberta.
14K GOLD FILLED, also called rolled-gold, these findings are not actually filled with gold. They are made of a base metal (copper or brass) and covered by sheets of 14k gold in a mechanical bonding process. Effectively a thick coat of gold: the gold content is 5% of the total weight. Gold fill jewelry is very high quality and it is hard wearing. With care (see care instructions below) it will not peel or flake, and should last as long as solid 14k gold jewelry. It is safe for most people with sensitive skin and allergy to normal, plated jewelry.
To prolong the color & shine of your jewelry, avoid contact with perfume, lotion, and water. Gold jewelry reacts with chlorine, never take your gold jewelry into a pool or spa. Store in a bag or jewelry box.
