Vermeil: Appears like gold, but requires extra care to maintain.
Pronounced "vehr-may", is a high quality gold plating over sterling silver. It differs from gold plated jewelry in that the standard thickness of the gold plating is the highest at 2.5microns, and it is always over sterling silver, as compared to cheap base metals that can irritate the skin in gold plated jewelry.
Vermeil will hold up and maintain its character with proper care. Store vermeil jewelry in a cool, dry, airtight space when not in use. Avoid leaving in direct sunlight or in damp places like the bathroom. Lotions and fragrances can compromise and alter the gold finish over time so it is best avoid direct contact with such products. Over time you may notice a patina on vermeil jewelry where exposed to regular high friction. We call this beautiful and admire the steady work of said time. If you decide you would like to re-plate your piece in gold, we are happy to add it to the next batch. Inquire about current pricing
We offer a carefully selected collection of jewelry in 14K Gold Vermeil with a beautiful satin matte finish. Larger items like earrings and necklace with greater surface area display the gold finish beautifully at a fraction of the cost of solid gold. We do not offer rings in vermeil due to the high wear and regular contact with abrasives, moisture and solvents.
Our vermeil jewelry is marked with a 925 sterling silver stamp.
