Pieces that carry a higher quality than most other fashion jewellery, it mimics the look of genuine gold, but without the price tag.
Not to be confused with regular traditional gold plating, vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a thick layer of 18k solid gold on sterling silver (not over brass, nickel or cheaper materials)
Vermeil will naturally tarnish over time, especially when exposed to environmental factors like air pollution, moisture, and items that contain sulfur.
