Vermeil durability Can't Post

Normally, I use all gold-filled findings, and am well aware of its durability and wearability. I've used gold plated findings in the past, but find that after only a few wearings, the gold is gone, leaving brass behind. (One pair of chain earrings I worked several hours on, the gold wore off after only 1 wearing! -- cheap stuff). So, I'm not real thrilled with regular gold plated stuff. So the question I have is about the durability/wearability of vermeil. I've seen some gorgeous findings -- clasps, bali-style beads, etc. -- in vermeil, but because I don't know how well they will last, I've been hesitant to purchase. How long will the plating on "good" vermeil last, generally speaking, compared to "standard" gold plating? Is it worth investing in the vermeil, or should I just stick to gold filled for the best quality without moving to karat gold?

Thanks :)

Well, any plating will wear off. Vermeil should last longer than standard gold plating. It's gold over silver and that has a better bond.

Gold filled offers the best compromise of durability vs cost, but the process does not allow the same variety that plating does (either standard plate, or vermeil).

Any plating will wear off. Vermeil must be remaining longer than trendy gold plating. It's gold over silver and that has a better bond.

Attempt however much as could reasonably be expected to abstain from presenting your adornments to cleaners, boiling water, and brutal synthetic substances. In a perfect world, you need to evacuate them before taking care of such arrangements. Substances, for example, chlorine, can for all time harm the surface of your piece. Remember this when utilizing chlorine fade or before making a plunge the pool.

Endeavor anyway much as could sensibly be relied upon to go without exhibiting your embellishments to cleaners, bubbling water, and fierce manufactured substances. Ideally, you have to empty them before dealing with such game plans. Substances, for instance, chlorine, can forever hurt the surface of your piece.

Vermeil generally looks like gold to the naked eye, making it an awesome option for naked who can't afford pure gold jewelry. You can also shine it up to give it a delightful gloss, or abandon it to discolor for a vintage look.
