As Seen In: Metro Paper - Vermeill

Today in the Metro paper I wrote about vermeill jewelry

Here are the pieces I mentioned:

Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a combination of metals. The core is pure sterling silver, the outside is a solid coating of finely crafted 18-24k gold.

1. Designer Peggy Li used Vermeil from Bali to fashion a perfect pair of hoop earrings dripping with delicate rubies or Tiffany blue turquoise. Available at Take 20% off thru Feb 13 – use code “metro” at checkout.

2. Designer Zina Kao carries a large selection of items in 23kt vermeil and she warns buyers to “make sure you purchase vermeil from a reputable dealer. That’s the only way you’ll be sure of the karat and that the as well as the base metal is sterling silver. Good vermeil looks rich, never cheap, so use your eye when buying vermeil.” We love Zina Kao’s Ruby Vermeil Lariat with vermeil daisies and the delicate Green and Amber Chalcedony Drops necklace. Visit to see the entire line.

3. Cocktail rings continue to be a hot trend during these cold months. Treat yourself to one of Monique Leshman’s chunky 18K Gold Vermeil rings with tiny amethyst and peridot stones luxuriously exploding from the face. I’d had this ring on for only a few hours and it drew admiring comments (wow, where’d you get that?!) left and right—just as a fabulous accessory should. To order visit
