Gold Vermeil vs Gold Plating
We all want to add some golden glamour into our stacks, but how do we choose between Gold Vermeil and gold plated jewellery?
From microns to carats to base metals, we’re giving you the low down to help you create your perfect gold jewellery collection.
Gold vermeil has secured its place in gold lovers’ collections by replicating similar properties as solid gold for a fraction of the price.
Our TL gold vermeil pieces are crafted using a recycled 925 Sterling Silver base. We then use a thick 2.5 microns coating of 18ct gold, for durability and quality. Therefore, our gold vermeil pieces are made using 100% precious metals.
Gold plating is a perfect solution for those who love to interchange the pieces in their collection. Although it shares similarities with gold vermeil, some differences set them apart.
Gold plated jewellery is sometimes more affordable, as the base metal is usually not a precious metal. We plate our in 18ct gold, which gives a beautiful golden finish similar to soild gold.
Our gold vermeil and gold-plated jewellery are the best alternatives to solid gold, if you're after everyday jewellery that will stand the test of time. Select your favourite TL pieces from our ever-growing collections and showcase the looks you create using #InMyTrinkets on Instagram.
