Gold plate means that the jewellery is sterling silver coated in gold. This looks great but it doesn’t last forever, the plating will eventually wear off and the piece will become silver. 

Vemeil is a term used for jewelry made of sterling silver and coated with gold. The word “vermeil” comes from French and is pronounced “ver-may.” The term “vermeil” is legally regulated and to qualify, a piece of jewelry must meet certain criteria. It's base must be sterling silver, it must be plated in gold of at least 10 karats, and the gold plating must have a thickness of at least 2.5 microns.  We offer vermeil and plate 3 microns as standard.
