14K Gold Vermeil
What is Gold Vermeil? Vermeil (French for silver, pronounced ver-may) refers to a variety of gold-coated metal. For metal to be considered vermeil, it needs to meet three main trade criteria:
The base of the metal must be of sterling (92.5%) or fine (99.9%) silver. This is why vermeil is also known by its other names: Silver Gilt or Gilded Silver
The purity of the gold must be of at least 10 karats
The thickness of the gold coat should consist of a minimum of 2.5 microns (0.0025 millimeters)
If these three criteria are not met, then the metal becomes gold-filled or gold-plated. You can also find gold vermeil in other colors such as rose gold.
Gold vermeil allows the jeweler to create beautiful gold jewelry designs, without the expense of using solid gold. Gold vermeil jewelry is crafted only using precious metals so it is more hypoallergenic and it gives the wearer the option of wearing gold jewelry at a much lower cost than solid gold.
