Potentially the most gorgeous Aquamarine Cabochon I HAVE EVER SEEN. I fell madly in love with this stone while perusing stones in Tucson last winter, and had to bring her home. She's a 6mm round gemstone, .85ct, set in 14k Gold Fill, minimal setting, with a beaded 14/20 cable chain in 18".
Gold Fill is an excellent alloy I have worked with for many years now. I've found it to be surprisingly durable and wearable, a great color match to 14k solid gold, and all at an affordable price point! This alloy is not to be confused with gold plating, which is total junk. 14k Gold FILL is a thick 14k solid gold layer on top of a brass core on all sides, and will not scratch off like plating always does. Plating is a microscopic dusting of gold over cruddy base-metal, and I never EVER use it.
14k Gold FILL is an excellent choice for folks with metal allergies, doesn't turn your skin green, and I always use 14k gold fill ear nuts, for an all-around quality (and hypoallergenic!) set of stud earrings!
