Solid gold is an ultra luxurious metal but its lofty price makes it less than ideal for many types of jewelry pieces. Gold vermeil is a form of gold that was developed to make fine jewelry and other items made from gold less expensive. The metal consists of a layer of sterling silver to which a thick layer of gold is permanently bonded. In the case of 24-karat gold vermeil, the gold used is 100 percent pure and contains no additional alloys.
A 24-karat gold vermeil necklace offers many benefits that make it a wise investment for your jewelry collection. Not only is 24-karat gold vermeil less expensive than solid 24-karat gold, but it's also more durable, as the inclusion of the sterling silver provides a strong base for the more delicate gold. Compared to 24-karat gold-plated jewelry, a gold vermeil piece generally offers double the amount of genuine gold, creating a surface that is less likely to wear and fade.
In the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry Collection, we feature gorgeous gemstone statement necklaces that are accented with 24-karat gold vermeil. You'll find the precious metal both in the designs of the decorative clasps and the beading used in our designs.
