Best Answer

That (1/10) signifies the over all weight of the gold in the pin, the 10kgf is the purity (10 karet "Caret") and the gf is for gold filled. The higher the caret the purer the gold is.

Gold-filled jewelry 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 look, luster, and beauty of 14 karat (58%) gold. By definition, the minimum layer of karat gold in an item stamped GF must equal at least 1/20 the weight of the total item. 1/20 12kt GF is the most common stamp you will find on gold-filled jewelry. 10kt and 14kt are also common karatages. Gold filled items, even with daily wear, can last five to 30 years but will eventually wear through. The gold layer on gold-plated jewelry varies greatly depending on manufacturer, so there is no single, simple comparison. Gold-filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 17 to 25,000 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate (sometimes stamped HGE or HGP -- usually found on flashy cubic zirconia "cocktail rings").

So basically your pin has 1/10 of the weight of the pin in gold.

Best wishes,
