What is vermeil?
Some of our ready-to-ship pieces are made out of vermeil, which is a durable, high-quality, but more affordable material than solid 14k gold. Vermeil jewelry has a base layer of silver. So unlike gold-plated or gold-filled pieces (which use whatever material may be cheapest as the base), vermeil jewelry is thoroughly high quality, from silver to gold. And second, vermeil jewelry has a thicker layer of 14k gold. We use the industry's highest standard of gold thickness (at least 2.5 to 3 microns). We recommend caring for your vermeil pieces in the same way you care for your solid gold pieces. Find tips here.
