Vermeil vs. Gold-Plated vs. Solid Gold Jewellery

In a world of glitz and glamour, jewellery has always held a special place. Not just about appeal, it shows personal style and can represent love and special memories. Choosing the right piece can be a difficult decision, especially when considering Vermeil, Gold-Plated, and Solid Gold.

Vermeil could be the ideal investment for those who want timeless beauty at an affordable price.

Gold Vermeil Jewellery - Elegance Meets Affordability
Now, let's focus on the middle ground – most of beautiful collections in Vermeil. Vermeil is silver with a layer of gold, giving it a classy look without being too expensive. Vermeil has a thicker layer of gold than gold-plated jewellery, making it more durable and resistant to damage. The gold layer must be above 2.5 microns to be considered Vermeil.

One of the key advantages of Vermeil is that it gives you the look and feel of solid gold at a fraction of the price. A savvy choice for those who seek to invest in timeless elegance without breaking the bank. Vermeil pieces can last for years, even decades, with proper care, making them perfect for both daily wear and special occasions.

We create most of our pieces from our beloved Vermeil, but here are some of our most popular ones. From stud earrings to your favourite necklaces and bracelets.

Gold Plated: A Shimmering Mirage
Gold-plated jewellery has undeniable allure, with its lustrous surface mimicking the radiant glow of solid gold. Most gold-plated jewelry is actually base metal covered with a thin layer of gold, usually brass or copper. While it certainly offers an affordable way to enjoy the aesthetics of gold, the downside lies in its durability. Over time, the gold layer can fade, leaving you with a piece that doesn't age well and has no worth.

We offer stylish and affordable jewelry pieces that are attractive whilst keeping the quality. Our main metal is Sterling Silver, stamped 925, never brass.This ensures that you receive a precious piece of fine jewelry. Additionally, you have the option to get it re-plated and repaired at our ROMY Atelier if needed.

Solid Gold: Timeless Luxury
Solid gold jewelry/ jewellery is the epitome of opulence and longevity. Solid gold pieces, whether they are 9k, 14k, 18k, or 24k, possess an enduring charm that people can pass down through generations. Its value remains intact, making it both a statement of style and a long-term investment. However, this level of quality often comes at a premium price, which might not be suitable for every budget.

We offer some solid gold pieces for some special moments, including some of our bestselling chain necklaces.
