"The lightning design of this sterling and gold bracelet is very powerful and rarely do we get 8" bracelets in . . . so step right up!"
The Total Inside Circumference (total measurement around the inside) is also the approximate wrist size. This measurement includes the gap. The gap is the distance between the ends.
What Does Gold-Filled Mean?
Gold-Filled (GF) is a layer of gold 10K or greater mechanically bonded under heat and pressure to a base material, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness or gage. Gold filled jewelry has a surface layer of gold that is very thick compared to gold plated or electroplated items. Gold-filled jewelry are considered LIFETIME products, and the gold layer will not quickly wear off, as it does with gold plated jewelry.
To be called gold-filled, the FTC (U.S. Federal Trade Commission) requires that gold makes up at least 1/20th (5%) by weight of the total product. Legal markings are 14K, 12K, or 10K Gold-filled (G.F.) and the karat measurement of gold content MUST be part of the marking or designation.
