Is this possible?

This is a stamped 14kt gold filled ring. Gold-filled jewelry, also known as rolled gold or rolled gold plate is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. Some high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as 14 karat (58%) gold.

 

From the listing itself, I think that would explain it.

But this:

Ring Main Material: White Gold

is somewhat misleading.

What I also find odd is that there are even "white gold" plated rings at all. White gold is usually rhodium plated anyway (because white gold is actually neither white, not very attractive). So are these rings plated (or "filled", which is supposed to be thicker than regular plating...) with both "white" gold AND rhodium?

Also, the rhodium plating on white gold usually needs to be redone every so often to maintain the colour and shine. With "white" gold plated rings, would you have to replate both the gold and then the rhodium each time?

And if "Gold-filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating" as is stated in the listing, then is there any room left for the brass??? I know gold plating can be thin, but THAT thin??? REALLY?

Thank you Lukeness for your feedback. These were my thoughts exactly, and is why I also opted for the "notrust" icon. I feel all these auctions are totally misleading and I cannot think that any of these stones are "genuine" . If they are, I will humbly apologise for my error.

I won't even go into the gemstones because there just isn't enough information. I'm not sure that the ring pictured is the actual one on offer as, purely from the image, that doesn't look like a ruby.
