#JTOTD: The Look of Gold with Vermeil Jewelry

Goldtone jewelry is 100% on trend right now. If you’re like me though, I don’t tendĀ to invest a fortune on trend pieces, and lean primarily toward sterling silver fashion jewelry.

An affordable alternative to achieveĀ a yellow gold “look” is to opt for vermeil (“vermay”) jewelry, or sterling silver that is electroplated with at least 100 millionths of an inch thick karat gold.

Wondering if a piece of jewelry you are looking at is vermeil? It is often marked with the word “vermeil,” or with standard sterling markings such as “925,” “sterling,” or “ster.”

Shine Bright!
