History: The art of gem carving or intaglio dates as far back as the seventh millennium B.C.E.. By the second millennium B.C.E., engraved gems had developed into a full-fledged industry in the Indus Valley. Through trade, these objects reached the Mediterranean.

Gold filled items are perfect if you're looking for a material that is higher quality than gold plated, but an affordable alternative to solid gold. Unlike gold plated, gold filled can last a lifetime if taken care of properly, and isn't affected by water or hot weather. It is also tarnish-free under normal conditions.
