Article: Gold Plating vs Gold Vermeil

Gold Plating vs Gold Vermeil

Gold-plated jewelry has been a popular choice for centuries, and for good reason. It offers an affordable way to enjoy the beauty of gold without breaking the bank. At Eden Bay, we specialize in creating high-quality 18k gold-plated jewelry that is both beautiful and durable.

Here are some reasons why choosing Eden Bay's 18k gold-plated jewelry is a smart choice over gold vermeil:

  1. Durability

One of the biggest advantages of 18k gold-plated jewelry over gold vermeil is durability. The electroplating process used in creating gold-plated jewelry creates a strong bond between the gold and the base metal, resulting in a piece of jewelry that is more durable and long-lasting than gold vermeil. Additionally, the thicker layer of gold used in gold vermeil is more prone to wear and tear over time, meaning that it may need to be replaced more frequently than gold-plated jewelry.

  1. Hypoallergenic

Another advantage of 18k gold-plated jewelry is that it is hypoallergenic. At Eden Bay, we use only the highest quality materials to create our jewelry. Our gold-plated jewelry is made from base metals that are less likely to cause allergic reactions, and we add a layer of protective coating to further reduce the risk of allergies. In comparison, gold vermeil is typically made with a base metal that can cause allergic reactions in some individuals.

  1. Low Maintenance

Gold-plated jewelry is easy to maintain, and our 18k gold-plated jewelry is no exception. With proper care, our jewelry will maintain its beauty for years to come. We recommend storing it in a jewelry box or pouch when not in use and avoiding contact with water, perfumes, and other harsh chemicals. In comparison, gold vermeil may require more maintenance due to its thicker layer of gold, which can be more prone to tarnishing and wear.

  1. Versatility

Our 18k gold-plated jewelry is versatile enough to be worn for any occasion. Whether you're dressing up for a night out or simply looking for a beautiful accessory to wear to work, our jewelry will complement any outfit. In comparison, gold vermeil may be seen as more formal or dressy, limiting its versatility.

In conclusion, if you're looking for high-quality, hypoallergenic, and low-maintenance jewelry, Eden Bay's 18k gold-plated jewelry is a smart choice over gold vermeil. Our jewelry is made from high-quality materials, is durable, and versatile enough to be worn for any occasion. Browse our collection today and find your perfect piece of 18k gold-plated jewelry!
