Let's talk gold vermeil (pronounced vehr-may...it's French) vs. gold plate. Did you know that gold vermeil uses a sterling silver base, instead of copper or brass? Gold vermeil is superior to gold plated, since the plating is 2.5 microns thick compared to plating with is 0.5 microns. Plating will wear quickly compared to gold vermeil. Another fact, the number (karatage) you see before the word "vermeil", this simply refers to how much gold content there is: 24k is 99.9%, 18k is 75%, 14k is 58% and 10k is 41% gold content.
