Gold sheets are placed on the surface of the silver piece and are then fixed together by heat and pressure, resulting in an exquisite embedded gold pattern. A big plus is that since the amount of gold used is very limited (a single foil sheet), the price is not extremely high for a promise ring that contains gold.
