What is gold vermeil?
Gold vermeil is a heavy layer of gold plating over 925 sterling silver base metal. It has a thicker layer of gold than gold plated and is made to last with proper care.
What is gold filled?
Gold filled is a solid layer of gold bonded to a base metal (such as brass). The layer of gold is 5-10 times thicker than gold plated jewelry resulting in a very durable and long lasting product. Gold Filled jewelry is tarnish resistant and a beautiful, affordable alternative to solid gold which can also be worn by people with sensitive skin. With proper care, gold filled jewelry should last for years.
