What's the difference between gold filled, gold vermeil and gold plated jewelry? This is by far one of the most common questions that I get so I wanted to answer it in as clearly as possible!
So let's jump in, to start out with all three of those terms refer to gold jewelry that is not made of solid gold. I started out by writing all of the similarities and differences down only to realize that the best way to display this is in a nice clean chart. (Which I then tried typing out and that wasn't working either so it was back to the drawing board... literally!
Check out my super-cute hand drawn chart below & my YouTube video if you're not really the reading type!
To keep things simple to understand, I'm going to compare and contrast two terms at a time based on the following:
Thickness of Gold, Production, Base Metal, Cost, Longevity
Also, about a year ago I made an IGTV video describing the differences so if you aren't following along on instagram, please do! @isafoxx_
