"taken" Necklace - Gold Filled - READY TO SHIP
As this charm is a ready to ship sample, no modifications can be made and there is only one available at this price.
This pendant created from gold-filled sheet which shaped, then hand stamped with "taken", and given a lightly brushed finish. It comes with a dainty 16" gold filled chain.
- Gold filled should not be confused with "gold plated". Gold-filled is constructed in three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. A gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. Our Gold-filled items are 14kt gold-filled. 14k Gold Fill (14K GF) has ± 100x more gold than a gold plated item. 14k Gold-filled products are identified as 14/20 Gold-filled; alternatively, 14kt Gold-Filled is also acceptable.
- The pendants measure 3/4" wide and about 3/4" long without the ring

- All items are shipped via USPS First-Class Mail, unless the shipping upgrade is chosen to add faster options.

Priority mail is processed more quickly than First Class (typically delivered in 3 days or less) and includes insurance to cover your purchase from loss or damage during transit.
- GREEN THINKING: Whenever possible, we source our supplies from other small domestic businesses and recycle/reuse packaging materials to help reduce our environmental impact. Our precious metals are refined at a location that is environmentally and energy responsible. We recycle all acceptable waste/scrap metal to reduce our landfill footprint. Our standard packaging is completely recyclable other than the fabric pouch, which is reusable.
Hand stamping is a much more durable and permanent method of creation than engraving or printing text onto metal. The design will not wear off like paint or ink and is much more deeply set into the metal than most engraving. EACH design and letter is individually hammered, one strike at a time, BY HAND. Because of this, there will be some variations in the spacing, depth of the designs and placement. This is not to be considered a defect, but instead a part of the unique character of the piece.
