This is Yazzy’s Collection of Gold Plated Jewellery and Vermeil Jewellery.
Our Gold Plated Jewellery is mainly 18 Karat gold plated. You might from time to time find higher our lower plated jewellery. However, this will be always mentioned in the jewellery.
We sell only gold plated jewellery (and silver plated jewellery) from the highest quality. So that your pieces will not tarnish quickly.
What is Vermeil
Vermeil is a type of jewellery made from sterling silver coated with a layer of gold. The gold layer must be at least 10 karats and be at least 2.5 microns thick. The term “vermeil” is derived from the French word for gold plating, “vermeil.”
Gold Plated vs Gold Vermeil
Gold plated and gold vermeil are two different finishes used to give the appearance of gold jewellery.
Gold plating involves electroplating a thin layer of gold over a base metal such as brass or stainless steel. The thickness of the gold layer can vary, but it is usually just a few microns thick. Because the gold layer is so thin, it is more likely to wear off over time, and it is less valuable than other types of gold jewelry.
Gold vermeil, on the other hand, is a type of plating that uses a thicker layer of gold over a base metal such as sterling silver. The gold layer in vermeil must be at least 2.5 microns thick, which is much thicker than the gold layer in typical gold-plated jewellery. Because of the thicker layer of gold, vermeil is more durable and less likely to wear off over time, and it is also more valuable than gold-plated jewelry.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a more durable and valuable type of gold-coloured jewellery, gold vermeil is a better option than gold plating. However, it will still be more expensive than gold-plated jewellery due to the thicker layer of gold used in the plating process.
