What is gold vermeil

18k gold vermeil, also known as “silver gilt”, is sterling silver 925 plated with a thin layer (3 microns thick) of 18k gold. “Gold vermeil jewelry is created by electroplating the silver with gold, a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two metals together.”

Gold vermeil is very long-lasting with proper care and is considered more durable than other gold plated options
