What's Gold Vermeil?
Vermeil, also known as "silver gilt," refers to high-quality (pure or sterling) silver that is plated with a thin layer of Gold. Most vermeil jewelry available now is created by electroplating the silver with Gold, a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two metals together.
Gold Vermeil will wear off because it is plated. The Speed at which a piece fades depends on your body chemistry, climate, as well as the frequency it is worn.
