In regards to Rolled Gold from an article by Troy Segal..... Definition: a hybrid material, consisting of a thin layer of gold that's mechanically bonded or heat-fused to one or both sides of a base metal (often brass or copper), then rolled out into sheets to create jewelry; the thickness of the gold layer can vary, but is generally at least 5% of the total metal weight vs. Gold-plated, which uses a thinner sheet of gold; patented in England in 1817, it became a prime source for semi-precious and better-quality costume jewelry in the Victorian era...
