What is Gold Vermeil?





Gold vermeil refers to gold plated 925 sterling silver Jewellery. Using at least 10k gold, it is the plating thickness that determine whether the item is labelled gold vermeil. In the United States, gold plating needs to be at least 2.5 micron (under FTC regulation). 


This is at least 5 times more than the normal gold plating and will ensure that the shine and colour of your Jewellery pieces last much longer. They are also great for people with sensitive skin.
