Vermeil jewellery is made by first creating the base of the item out of silver and then plating it with a thin layer of gold. The method used to cover the surface of the piece with gold is called electrolysis. Gold vermeil can be made with gold of varying purity, but in Coronet’s case only 18ct is used. To be considered vermeil, a piece needs to be plated with gold that is at least 10 cts (which corresponds to approximately 42% gold content). Further, UK regulations state that an item cannot be sold as vermeil unless its gold plating is at least 2.5 microns thick (0.0025 millimeters).
