Vermeil refers to high quality (pure or sterling) silver that is plated with a thick layer of real gold. Most vermeil jewelry available now is created by electroplating the silver with real gold, a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two metals together. In order to be considered as true vermeil jewelry in the US, the piece has to meet certain qualifications. For instance, the gold on the piece needs to be at least 2.5 microns thick, and at least 10k or higher.
In gold plating, any metal can be used as the base (But we use sterling silver), and the gold layer can be of varying levels of purity. This will result in a variety of thicknesses for the gold coating.
Gold plated pieces are cheaper than vermeil jewelry as the gold color is just gold color not real gold to create the core for the plating, which is dipped in gold to form a thin layer of gold plating. However, the coating can wear out eventually, leaving your jewelry with the base only. It is jewelry made of base metal silver that has a very thin layer of gold applied to the top. The layer is so thin, that it can usually be rubbed off with a coarse pencil eraser in a few swipes. All items are nicely packaged ready to gift in beautiful jewelry boxes.
