Pure gold is a beautiful rich light yellow metal worshipped and highly prized by many societies throughout human history. It is well known and accurate to say that pure gold is a soft but highly durable metal.
The most popular are Solid Gold, Gold Vermeil. It is important to know the differences between Gold Vermeil / Gold filled jewellery and Gold Plated jewellery when making your choice. Solid gold is, of course, an exquisite piece of jewellery. Gold filled or Gold vermeil is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold.
Gold Vermeil & Gold Filled
Gold Vermeil / Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to 925 Silver. Gold vermeil is not to be confused with gold plating as vermeil literally has 50% more gold than gold plating. Gold vermeil/ Gold filled is much more valuable. Care must be taking with all non-gold as discolouring may occur if our care instructions aren't followed.
925 sterling silver
Sterling Silver is a mixture of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. The very small amount of copper gives the metal enough strength and hardness to be made into jewellery.
