NEW and available online exclusively at Artful Jeweler! Graceful Pods are carved from wax and then electroformed in sterling silver and 18k gold vermeil. The 40-inch long snake chain may be worn at the fashionable opera length or shorter.
Vermeil is a French word which came into use in the English language, as an alternative for the usual term silver-gilt, it is a combination of sterling silver, gold, or other precious metals. Vermeil is a thicker application of gold than the traditional gold plated jewelry or gold-filled alternatives.
The gold portion must be at least ten karats, however, most of the Artful Jeweler artist use the thicker 18 karat gold. To the naked eye, it looks just like pure gold.
Also available with two 18k gold vermeil pods SK-39246.
