What is vermeil?Updated 9 months ago

Vermeil is a term used to describe high quality jewellery that must meet the following standards:

1. The base metal is 925 sterling silver.
2. The gold karat must be at least 12K. We utilise 14K and 18K, depending on the piece.
3. The gold must be at least 2.5 microns thick. This is much thicker than electroplating or typical gold dipped jewelry and will outlast typical gold plated items.
