What Does E-Coating Mean?
E-coating, also known as electro-coating or electro deposition, is a method that uses electrical current to coat a metal surface with an organic lacquer, covering every nook and cranny on the jewelry with an even and consistent protective coat. This coat protects the sterling silver used to create the jewelry. E-coated jewelry isn't as shiny as Rhodium plated pieces and has a warmer tone in colour, but it lets the natural beauty of the sterling silver come through without fear of damage.

What is Vermeil?
Vermeil is a type of gold plating. In order for a piece of jewellery to be considered vermeil, it must meet certain requirements. The piece must have sterling silver as the base metal, the gold must be at least 10k in quality, and the thickness of the gold must be at least 1 micrometre (based on the requirements of the Government of Canada).
What's the Difference Between Plated and Vermeil?
Vermeil and plated have different specifications. While both have to use at least 10k gold and have a thickness of at least 1 micrometre, gold plated items can have any kind of metal as a base. However, as House of Jewellery only deals with precious metals, all our gold plated products are truly gold vermeil. We ask most of our manufactures to put a minimum of 2.5 microns of 14k gold on all our jewellery for additional durability.
