What is 18ct vermeil jewelry?
Pronounced ‘ver-may,’ vermeil differs to traditional gold plating by the thickness of the gold and the quality of the base metal used.
Plated jewelry typically uses lower quality metals, like brass or steel, while vermeil jewelry is crafted from high-quality sterling silver. Vermeil also boasts a thicker, more durable 2.5-micron gold coating. By contrast, plated jewelry typically has one layer of very thin gold that can be easily chipped or worn off.
I am allergic to plated jewelry, will I be allergic to vermeil too?
Most people who are allergic to plated jewelry are commonly reacting to nickel, which is commonly used in the electroplating process and to color the gold. This cheap metal does not feature in our vermeil jewelry, so those who have experienced a reaction to the nickel in gold plated jewelry should not be affected by vermeil.
