All of our Golden treasures at Midsummer Star are sterling silver with 18K Gold Vermeil. Crafted with intention to cherish for years to come, our delicate jewels are designed with longevity in mind.
There are various elements involved in gold plated jewels, and different properties produce different standards of appearance, quality and durability. To first explore karats, the higher the karats, the higher the percentage of gold is in the plating. All of our treasures are 18K gold plated, which is 75% gold. The other 25% consists of more durable metals, which are blended into the plating, to increase the durability of the overall piece.
Our gold vermeil adornments are plated 3 microns thick. A micron equates to one millionth of a meter. Similarly to karats, the higher the micron the thicker the plating is, meaning your jewels have deeper layers of gold. 18 karat gold is often micron plated over .925 sterling silver to create a beautiful, long-lasting, durable finish, just like the glistening golden jewels at Midsummer Star.
Care must still be taken with any gold plated jewellery, to ensure your treasures stay sparkling for as long as possible. Take at look at our care instructions to get to know how to cherish your golden jewels.
We invite you to explore our coveted collections of golden jewels and find something special to elevate your everyday and treasure for years to come.
