Understanding the Difference: Gold Vermeil vs. Gold Plated Jewelry

At NK Silver, we believe in providing our customers with the highest quality and most accurate information about our jewelry. Today, we'd like to shed some light on the difference between Gold Vermeil and Gold Plated jewelry, ensuring that you make an informed choice for your personal style or business endeavors. Let's dive in!
 
Gold Vermeil: The Epitome of Elegance
Gold Vermeil jewelry is crafted by coating a layer of genuine gold onto a sterling silver base. To be classified as Gold Vermeil, the gold layer must be at least 2.5 microns thick and consist of a minimum purity of 10 karats. This results in a durable and luxurious piece that exudes the allure of solid gold, offering an affordable alternative without compromising on quality or style. With proper care, Gold Vermeil jewelry can maintain its beauty and shine for years to come.
 
Gold Plated: A Touch of Radiance
Gold Plated jewelry, on the other hand, involves a thin layer of gold being electroplated onto a base metal, such as brass or copper. While Gold Plated jewelry offers a more budget-friendly option, it typically has a thinner gold layer compared to Gold Vermeil. The thickness can vary but is generally around 0.5 to 1 micron. Gold Plated jewelry can still be beautiful and eye-catching, but it may require more frequent re-plating to maintain its luster over time.
