Vermeil is a type of gold-finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. Our gold vermeil is 18 karats.
The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewelry apart from gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.
Vermeil pieces must have a sterling silver base (instead of brass or cheaper metals) and are a great way to start upgrading from costume pieces (made of cheaper metal alloys and brass) to real and fine jewelry.
Our vermeil jewelry is hypoallergenic, and only sold in limited quantities, making each purchase an investment in your individual style.
