Gold Vermeil & Gold Filled
Gold Vermeil & Gold Filled
Gold Vermeil jewellery is made by first creating the base of the item out of silver and then plating it with a layer of gold. Our vermeil is a thick layer (more than 2.5 microns) of 1K solid gold on sterling silver meaning it will last for years. You get the look & feel of gold jewellery without a hefty price tag.
Gold-Filled jewellery (also known as rolled gold) comprises a solid brass (copper and zinc) core over which gold is mechanically bonded using heat and pressure.
The difference between Gold Vermeil vs. Gold-Filled
The main difference between vermeil and gold-plated/gold-filled jewellery is the base metal. Apart from Gold Vermeil, Gold-Filled and Gold-Plated normally use brass, copper, or nickel as the base metal.
For this reason, vermeil jewellery can be more valuable than comparable gold-plated or gold-filled items made with a cheaper base metal or alloy.

Something about Gold Fill
Will Gold Filled wear off?Gold Filled is the best alternative to solid gold which means it's extremely durable and your gold filled jewellery can last a lifetime if you take care of it properly!
However, the harsh truth is, apart from 24 carat gold, all fine metal will tarnish over time. So we still strongly recommend you to remove it in salt water and avoid any contact with harsh chemicals or perfumes.
