**The sterling silver/14kt gold overlay is a precious metal laminate fabricated at Ed Levin's request over 35 years ago. A 14kt sheet is bonded to a sterling sheet, then rolled or formed into flat sheet, wire, or tube for hand fabrication. This special metal ranges up to 34% 14kt gold by weight and should not be confused with vermeil or gold gilled. Vermeil is a thin electroplating measured in microns and the gold content is virtually unmeasurable as a percentage of the overall weight. Gold-filled is a process by which a layer of at least 10k gold has been mechanically bonded to a base metal.
