Resin filled 14k gold jewelry

I heard it is supposed to be very strong and does not dent or scratch. What are your experiences?

hardly any gold on a piece. might be stronger, can not be repaired if dented

Re: Resin filled 14k gold jewelry

Is this jewelry a resin dipped in gold, and how thick is the 14K?

I don't care for it and won't buy.

@dansker

Good question. They bill it as gold jewelry that's been filled with resin to give it strength and resiliency but if the gold piece is very thin to begin with, it would be more accurate to call it resin dipped in gold or gold-plated resin!

That is an excellent question Dansker.  I have never purchased any but I wonder if it is resin dipped in gold.  They never go into detail when presenting it.

They make the piece then fill it with the resin before it's sealed.  Resin filled gold is less easy to dent but no one will buy it because it can't be melted.

 

I sold fine jewelry for four years, and while I am not a gemologist, I was trained by a gemologist.

I won't buy resin and gold.  The gold is no more than clad, maybe less.   I tried one piece early on and the gold peeled within 3 months.

Have no interest in this line.  Not repairable.
