What Is Vermeil?

A Vermeil (pronounced vair-MAY) is a substance made of gilded sterling defined by a fine double-plating of at least 10-karat gold plated over silver. The gold finish accentuates detail and gives the silverware an elegant, lustrous look. Gold electroplate is the same process of gold overlay, but on stainless steel or metal alloy in place of the sterling silver.
