Vermeil is a specific kind of gold plating over sterling silver. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 10 karats and be at least 2.5 micrometers thick. Due to its silver core, vermeil tends to be more affordable than solid gold pieces, yet offers a similarly shiny appearance.
Color Description: Similar to gold-filled, it would depend on the karat of gold used. However, since vermeil uses a silver core, it might have a slightly brighter sheen compared to pieces that use other base metals.
