About Gold Vermeil
All Flash pieces are produced with Vermeil, setting Flash apart from regular 'gold plated' jewellery. Vermeil is the next best thing to solid gold, without the price tag. Vermeil is a base metal of 925 Sterling Silver, with a very thick (Flash uses 2.5 - 3 micron thickness) overlay of solid 14 or 18 karat gold. A piece of jewellery can not be labelled as Vermeil unless it is tested and meets these industry standards. Making jewellery in this way, with two precious metals, ensures excellent longevity and durability in all Flash pieces. Vermeil jewellery is made to be lived in, and worn every day.
Other 'gold plated' jewellery is generally a brass base with gold plating on top - this gold plate layer can be any thickness, and these pieces usually contain nickel in the brass component.
All Flash Jewellery pieces are individually handmade by skilled artisans.
