At Bonito, we believe jewelry has the power to hold sentimental value and bring us joy as we wear them in the small moments of daily life (and for years to come). For this reason we only source and work with precious metals and stones of the highest quality.

 

What is gold vermeil?

The composition of gold vermeil includes a base metal of 025 sterling silver, with a thick layer of solid gold electroplated over sterling silver. 

The karat of the solid gold must be between 10-24k, & the gold thickness must be no lower than 2.5 microns. This offers a very thick layer of solid gold that will not 'rub off'. 

.

 

Why do we work with it?

  • High-quality piece of jewellery at an affordable price point.
  • Longer lasting product that is a benchmark in quality.
  • Thicker layer of gold than most gold plated jewellery.
  • Hypoallergenic & Nickel Free.
  • Generally will last for years when cared for as per our guidelines.
  • Better investment than standard gold-plated jewellery.
  • Won’t discolour your skin.

And how do you pronounce that?

Ver-may ;P


Can I wear gold vermeil everyday?

Absolutely! We do recommend following some guidelines to make sure your pieces stay beautiful. Click here to read our Bonito Care Guide.


How do I clean it?

We recommend using a gentle polishing cloth on your gold vermeil pieces, ensuring it is clean and dry. 


So, is this the same as solid gold?

No. Gold vermeil is crafted with 14k (solid) gold with a thickness of 2.5 microns on a 925 sterling silver base.


Is gold vermeil hypoallergenic?

Yes! Gold vermeil pieces are made up of precious metals which are hypoallergenic. This should not cause you any reaction. the element that usually gives allergy to jewellery is nickel, and we are happy to say all of Bonito's pieces are nickel free!


Will it tarnish?

Wearing your jewelry every day also means it will tell a story and gather imperfections as it accompanies you in all your adventures. The pieces will not tarnish; however, contact with pollutants, beauty products, humidity or water can cause oxidisation. Click here to read our Bonito Care Guide.
