What is Gold Vermeil?
Vermeil (pronounced vehr-may) is a term used to describe high-quality sterling silver jewelry coated with a thicker layer of gold. The term vermeil is regulated, and to be classified as Gold Vermeil, the jewelry must have Sterling Silver as its base metal and be plated with 10k gold (or above) at least 2.5 microns thick.
Is Gold Vermeil the same as Gold plated?
In short, no. Gold Vermeil is at least five times superior quality than gold-plated or gold-filled jewelry. That is to say, Gold-plated jewelry has a gold layer at least five times thinner than vermeil. Such a thin layer wears off quickly, while vermeil materials are more durable. Not only that, but quite often, a gold-plated piece has brass and copper as its base metal. Vermeil, on the other hand, has a solid base of sterling silver.
Will gold vermeil wear off?
Precious materials and quality manufacturing make Gold vermeil more durable and wear-resistant than other gold-plated jewelry. With the proper care, it can last for years to come. But please keep in mind, due to its nature, it can eventually wear off. In such scenarios, you can always contact a local jeweler to re-plate your jewelry.
