Vermeil Jewelry

What is Vermeil? Vermeil is a layer of gold that is placed over sterling silver jewelry. Unlike Gold plating, vermeil is only placed over silver.

Gold plating is placed over other metals, which some people might have an allergic reaction to. Vermeil can be an excellent opportunity to purchase jewelry that is gold, without incurring the high cost of gold.

Usually jewelry that is vermeil is using 18K or 24K gold placed over sterling. Vermeil Jewelry looks like real gold, but does cost less than real gold, and it will cost more than gold plated jewelry, because the gold is higher quality, and the base metal is sterling silver.

When you see the sterling silver markings on jewelry that looks like gold, you are probably looking at Vermeil Jewelry.

I have been buying and selling vintage and antique jewelry for about 7 years. Mostly on ebay. I like unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry and prefer old over new. Vintage jewelry is a little like me, not so easy to fit in a box.
I have a masters degree in social work and practiced for 15 years in an outpatient community mental health center. . I have innovated a couple of products. Own rental property and managed it for years. I have bought and sold a variety of products in my life time, and currently my focus is on vintage Jewelery. I suppose it's easier then sitting home knitting a sweater.
