What are Different Carats of Gold?

The quality of gold is determined by its Carats (ct) or Karats (K). It's important not to confuse this with the weight of a diamond measured in carats. For example, pure gold is considered 24 carats, also written as 24ct, 24K, or pure gold. To learn more, please click here.

What is the Difference Between 18ct Solid Gold and 18ct Gold Vermeil?

18ct Solid Gold is considered the finest gold purity and has a high amount of pure gold of 750/1000. You can learn more about why we use 18-carat solid gold in our jewellery. To learn more about solid gold, please click here.

In simple terms, Gold Vermeil is Sterling Silver plated with 0.0025mm gold. This is also commonly referred to as gold-on-sterling. For an item to be called vermeil, it must have a gold layer that is 2.5 microns (0.0025mm) in thickness.

However, we have a 14 days returns policy (excluding earrings & engraved items), meaning our customers are welcome to try our jewellery at home.

  • You should have included a required field at the checkout, such as filling in your postcode.
  • There may be an issue with our payment processor or independent payment providers. Please contact us if you experience any payment difficulties.
