All plated Angela Wozniak Jewellery is ‘Vermeil’ quality. Vermeil is 2.5 microns thick of genuine 14k Gold on Sterling Silver.
In comparison, standard platings are 0.5 microns thick of imitation gold on cheap base metals which is fast fading and when the underlying metal is exposed causes skin to turn green and causes irritations due to the Nickel content in the base metal.
As all 'Vermeil' jewellery has a mandatory sterling silver base, this means that all of the jewellery you wear is always nickel free, skin-friendly / hypoallergenic.
'Gold Filled' Quality
'Gold Filled' is not plated. It's made by pressure bonding genuine 14k or 18k gold to a base metal which is 10x thicker than 'Vermeil'.
At Angela Wozniak Jewellery we use 'Gold Filled' for non-handmade pre-fabricated chains, pendants, clasps and other jewellery components like spacer beads and hooks. This ensures a quality product that is long lasting.
