Does "The House of Solid Gold" produce "Vermeil" products?
All 24K gold products produced by The House of Solid Gold fall in the category of being a "Vermeil", unless otherwise stated. The House of Solid Gold goes to great extremes to assure the customer receives the highest quality in all of its custom pieces. Many of our 24K gold products are supplied by other sources and either cannot be made with a silver base metal or have other base metals such as aluminum or steel. Examples of these are our 24K gold eyewear and our 24K gold Extreme Mountain Bike. For durability and long term strength, these types of products would not do well with a sterling silver base.
What is Vermeil? (Pronunciation: ver-MAY)
Vermeil is a metal made by coating a base of pure sterling silver with pure gold that is at least 10 karat and a minimum of 2.5 microns thick (100/1,000,000 inch). The House of Solid Gold uses only 24K gold for this process.
The term vermeil cannot be used if the sterling is covered with a base metal before being coated with gold unless the presence of the base metal is disclosed.
The House of Solid Gold promotes quality products by using pure sterling silver and overlaying pure 24K gold whenever possible. Vermeil gold pieces are considered extremely durable when compared to other commonly gold plated objects.
