Vermeil this, and Vermeil that; but what exactly is Vermeil? Let us tell you all about it! Pronounced “vehr-may”, this type of jewelry is a high quality 925 Sterling Silver that has been plated with a thick layer of 18K gold. This term ‘vermeil’ has been made a regulated term and for pieces to be considered as such they must follow a certain standard to ensure that you are getting the best quality pieces. In order to be considered vermeil, the piece has to have a sterling silver base, be plated in 18k gold, and the gold plating has to be a minimum of 2.5 microns thick.


If this is your first time hearing about Vermeil then you might be wondering as to why you would choose to go this route as opposed to gold plated jewelry or solid gold. Although gold plated jewelry tends to be more affordable it is not the best quality jewelry you can get. Gold plated jewelry will usually have a copper or a brass base, they’ll usually have a thin coating of gold over top and you’ll have to be careful with not getting them wet due to the fact that they will tarnish quickly.

Solid gold jewelry, although the best quality you can get, will have the highest price. Granted you’ll be getting 100% gold all the way through and it will never tarnish, it might not be in everyone’s budget. Vermeil is a nice in-between offering a 925 sterling silver base, thick layer of gold over top, is good for everyday wear, and you can get it wet without having to worry about it tarnishing! Best of all you get the same look as solid gold jewelry without having to pay the price.


While being budget friendly, vermeil jewelry pieces are the perfect way to start your fine line jewelry collection. By slowly incorporating vermeil options into your everyday jewelry you will slowly begin to get a taste of what having high quality jewelry is like along with its benefits such as sustainability and longevity.
