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

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 love gold rings with a resin core! I have one, which has outlasted my other gold rings by years!
When gold prices are high, there just isn't enough thickness to gold rings in the lower price range, to make them durable. My favorite large band rings are in the scrap-gold pile while the braided, resin-core ring that I never remove, is still wearable, with no dings and is not misshapen. It is scratched and worn, but intact.
