Hand forged triangle embellished with a unique symmetrical pattern stamped onto its face cast in brass or sterling. Triangle is perched atop a delicate 14.5" long antique brass diamond cut chain with 1.5" of 14k gold fill chain for added length.
Developed as a gilding technique in 18th century France, gold vermeil is a thick plating of high karat gold over a sterling silver base. Amongst traditional jeweler's metals, gold vermeil is second only to solid gold. Gold Vermeil pieces are made first in solid sterling silver before plating with 100 mils of 23.5 karat gold. With proper care, this thickness allows for years of daily wear. While very high karat gold is normally a deep yellow, this vermeil piece is toned to an almond color to more closely resemble the softness of 14k-18k gold.
Care: Just as with any piece of jewelry, gold vermeil should be stored with care in a soft pouch or box. Although more resilient than a plating, it is still best to remove vermeil pieces before showering or working out.
Sensitivity: 23.5k gold is the only metal to have skin contact in this gold vermeil piece, making it a great option for those with very sensitive skin.
