When making this piece, we start with a 19mm 14k yellow gold circle pendant and hammer it by hand with our line-effect hammer. We then suspend a sterling silver heart pendant (also hammered, but with our traditional texture) inside the circle and attach them to a 14k gold filled chain. While there are no words stamped onto this piece, it holds rich symbolism when paired with the quote on the display card. This is a favorite of the Pressed team because of its dainty, feminine look, mixed hammer textures, and mixed metals.
Chain: 18″ 14k yellow gold filled
Display card quote:
“Love isn’t perfect. It isn’t a fairy tale or a storybook. And it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on, and never letting go. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it together.”
“What is gold-filled?”
Gold-filled jewelry is constructed by bonding a gold alloy to a core metal such as brass or sterling silver via heat and pressure. Unlike gold-plated jewelry, gold-filled is legally required to contain at least 5% gold by weight. It is durable, tarnish resistant, and wearable for people with sensitive skin. Gold-filled jewelry an excellent, affordable alternative to solid gold.
