What is 'Vermeil'?
Pronounced “ver-may,” this material is a combination of silver and gold.
It looks just like pure gold but is often less expensive and can be shined up to a gloss, or left to tarnish for a more vintage look.
With vermeil jewelry, the base metal is sterling silver, which is much better for those who have skin allergies to other base metals.
The silver is then gold-plated, but with MUCH thicker coat, often as much as 50% thicker than a traditional gold-plated piece.
While less expensive than solid gold jewelry,Vermeil is still far higher quality than either gold-plated or gold-filled.
*The finish can tarnish, to protect it, store it in an airtight container and wipe it down with a soft cloth. Do not to treat the finish with chemicals! That will remove the gold.
