Gold Beech Leaf Earrings
Each piece of leaf jewellery has a choice of finish: Silver, Rose-gold or Yellow-gold vermeil.
Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is the process of coating sterling silver with a layer of gold which is at least 10 karats and 1.5 microns thick.
Vermeil looks like pure gold, it can be polished for a glossy look or left to tarnish for a hint of vintage style (very popular with the Rose-gold).
Vermeil jewellery typically costs less than pieces made from pure gold but more expensive than gold-plated pieces. This is because its’ coating of the precious metal is 50 times thicker and is coated on to sterling silver rather than a cheaper core of copper.
Each piece is sent to Edinburgh Assay Office for independent verification of the quality of the Sterling silver and is stamped accordingly.
So you can choose which finish you want your leaf jewellery – Silver, Rose-gold or Yellow-gold, and of course there will be a matching chain with each pendant.
So you can be assured of a quality piece of immortalised Sherwood Forest!
