Mid Century Gold-Filled Striped Tie Bar

Mid Century Gold-Filled Striped Tie Bar


This gold-filled tie bar features an engraved diagonal stripe design with a center area ready for a monogram, date, or other inscription. This tie bar is marked on the back “1-20-12K GF BAB”, indicating that it is 12 karat gold-filled with a ratio of mass of karat gold sheet to mass of the entire piece (karat + base metal). Thus, because this tie bar weighs 4g, it contains .1g of pure gold. Gold-filled jewelry, such as this, is more valuable than gold-plate because gold-filled pieces contain a much higher content of pure gold.
