FAQs

What is 'Gold Vemeil'? 

Gold vermeil (pronounced vehr-may) must meet ALL of these conditions:

  • Have sterling silver as its base material. Sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other materials, and is a standard material used in high quality jewellery (versus, e.g., brass or copper).
  • Be plated in a gold layer that is at least 10k (10 karats). That means the gold is at least 41.7% gold content.
  • Have gold plating that is at least 2.5 microns thick. A micron is 1/1000th of a mm.

What is 'Gold PVD'?

PVD stands for Physical Vapour Deposition and is a vacuum coating process of gold that produces a brilliant decorative and functional finish to the base metal. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and wear than regular gold plating. It's extremely vibrant and durable for many years. Even big, luxury brands use this process, like Rolex and Cartier. Seriously! If it's good enough for Rolex, it's good enough for us.
