Necklaces range in length from 14 to 50 inches. On the average woman,
lengths will fit as described below. If you want to be sure of fit,
either measure a necklace you already own, or measure and cut a piece
of string and try it on. Make sure to leave a bit more than the length
you are testing so you can tie or tape the string.
14 inches: choker.
16 inches: at the neckline.
(recommended - a very wearable length for most women)
17-18 inches: just below the neckline.
Gold fill is a manufacturing process in which gold is permanently bonded under enormous pressure to the surface of a matching color metal alloy. This milling process results in a gold surface about 100 times thicker than conventional gold plating. The material produced is about 5% gold, so is much less expensive than solid gold. In appearance jewelry produced with 14kt gold fill is identical to jewelry produced with 14kt solid gold. The only way to tell them apart visually - even for a jeweler - is by the stamping indicating it is gold fill not solid gold. Gold fill is extremely unlikely to "wear off" and is considered fine quality, unlike base metal costume jewelry.
14kt rose gold is an alloy that uses more copper than standard 14kt yellow gold alloy, resulting in a appealingly "rosy" warmer pinkish tone.
