Gold Vermeil + Gold Filled
Gold Vermeil items are made of sterling silver and electro-plated with a layer of gold. While gold vermeil can tarnish over time, it can easily be polished away. It is a great option for those who don’t want to spend big money on solid gold.
Gold Filled consists of 2-3 thicker layers of solid gold which is mechanically bonded or pressed using heat to fuse the gold layer and the underlying base metal (brass, copper or other base metals) together. As two or three thick layers of gold cover the base metal inside, the jewellery is long lasting and protected from tarnishing and discolouration.
