What is "SILVER FILLED"?
-meets the same legal requirement of "gold filled" as it is 10% sterling silver which is bonded to a white brass core...this is 30x's thicker than any silver plate
-it is half hard and will work harden
-the white brass core is barely noticeable when you look at an open ring-picture 2, and not noticeable at all when properly closed...and "heals" to a good degree when cut with cutters as in picture 1
-tarnishes, oxidized, polishes just like sterling silver
-can be hammered, soldered, textured
-has the identical look and feel of sterling silver
-is about HALF the price of sterling silver
-is Made in the USA
