A little info about vermeil jewelry. Pronounced “ver-may,” this material is a combination of silver and gold. The gold portion must be about ten karats, however, depending on the thickness of the piece for which it is being used, it can be as much as 14, 18 or 24 karats. Some might wonder then, what the difference is between vermeil and gold-plated or gold-filled. With gold-plated, there is a base metal of steel or brass which is then dipped in gold to create a thin layer. The gold is known to wear off eventually. Anyone who is allergic to the base metal may experience a skin reaction, such as a black rubbing or rash if they are allergic to the metal underneath. Gold-filled is actually better quality than gold-plated. The base metal is still brass or copper, but the outside of the piece bonds with sheets of gold, usually 14 karat.With vermeil jewelry, the base metal used has to be sterling silver, which is much better for those who have skin allergies to other base metals. The silver is then gold-plated, but with a thicker coating, often as much as 50% thicker than a traditional gold-plated piece. While less expensive than solid gold jewelry, using this technique is still more expensive than either gold-plated or gold-filled, as the price of gold and sterling silver brings the cost up a bit.
