What is Vermeil Gold?

Vermeil jewellery is one of the hottest trends right now as it strikes the perfect balance between quality and value. Many people tend to confuse vermeil with gold plating, and even though they do share a few aspects, there is a big difference in quality, durability, and desirability.  

Typically, vermeil is a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver.

The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewellery apart from simple gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.

If you want to build a collection of high-quality jewellery without the pure gold price tag,  vermeil gold is a fantastic option.
