Gold Vermeil vs Gold Filled: What’s the difference and which one is best?

Basically they are two very different things… Vermeil, (Pronounced: Ver-may) refers to Sterling Silver with Gold plate. A quality piece of Vermeil jewellery is created using 18ct gold and in some cases 22ct and 24ct gold depending on the desired effect and design. To be consider a true Vermeil piece requires two important factors, firstly the original design has to be made in a precious metal, Sterling Silver and secondly the gold plate has to have a minimum thickness of 2.5 microns on all surfaces. Vermeil jewellery has a larger quantity of gold then used in other types of gold plated pieces. The gold is applied by electrolysis which bonds the gold to the metal. This process makes the gold plate hard wearing and long lasting. Gold Vermeil jewellery has a collectable appeal as the original design is created in precious metal making the entire piece more valuable .

The term ‘Gold Filled’ refers to jewellery which has a thin layer of gold bonded to an alloy which is a non-precious metal. Most commonly used is brass. Sometimes ‘Gold Filled’ is also referred to as ‘rolled gold’ or ‘rolled gold plate’. The process is created when a thin sheet of gold is bonded to an alloy such as brass or copper through heat and high pressure. In order to be considered ‘Gold Filled’ the amount of gold used must be a minimum of 9ct (UK) 10ct (US) and usually doesn’t exceed 14ct. The gold used for...

Something Beautiful From Something Treasured…One of our best creations of 2015!

The Enchanted Spiked Pear Ring, shining of magic and mystery.   On a bright sunny spring day of March 2015 I had the pleasure of catching up with Leyla and Shawn Makris, two very close friends of mine living in an enchanted place not far from the coast in Southern California. Leyla and I were enjoying a fun catch up together. As our girl talk transcended from boots to jewellery, she said she had something to show me and presented me with a jewellry pouch. Inside was a beautiful Pear Shaped Diamond which had been given to her some time ago by her loving husband, Shawn. As she placed the pouch in my hand she asked if I could design her a ring using this very special diamond. The diamond was gorgeous. As I turned it in my hand it threw rays of light across the room. There was a magic to this stone. Excitement levels rose to an all-time high as ideas for the design came in fast. It wanted to be unusual, timeless, a statement piece but understated. Yellow Gold and in my mind maybe a few extra diamonds thrown in for good measure, a little extra sparkle to really allow the design to come to life. Leyla was open to giving me the freedom to design her something special. My idea was unusual, it incorporated some classic elements with a little twist. This seemed like the perfect match for Leyla’s personality. A great expression of her. As the design image formed in my mind over the coming days I was anxious to return to the UK...
