This collection of rings contains 1.30 troy ounces of 16ga 12/20 goldfill in a variety of millimeter-size ring diameters. If you prefer, you can also purchase single ounces of assorted 12/20 goldfill rings. And if you’d rather work in inches? There’s a collection of 16ga 12/20 goldfill rings in inch sizes.
This collection includes:
size 4M16 – 0.12 ozt
size 6M16 – 0.54 ozt
size 10M16 – 0.64 ozt
These rings are made from wire with a 12K layer of gold over a brass core. My usual goldfill rings are 14K instead.
When I first started making goldfill rings, I opted for 12/20 goldfill (12K over brass, with the gold being 1/20th of the total thickness). At the time, I thought it was a clever choice because 12/20 goldfill is slightly cheaper than 14/20 goldfill. But it’s also not quite as “gold” in color and after working with them for a little while I decided to switch to the more richly colored 14K version.
Here you see the last echoes of my 12/20 goldfill experiment. These rings have been languishing in dusty boxes for over a decade, waiting for me to find them a home. Adopt them!
