The Letter 'V'

Today is Wednesday, 25th April 2012 and the letter is 'V'. 'V is for Vermeil!' Pieces of jewellery that are made of Vermeil have a sterling silver base with a layer of gold on top. It is a way of making precious metal jewellery that is less expessive than solid gold, but still of high quality and more valuable than if they had been just gold-plated over base metals such as brass.





Today is my mother's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mother!

Best wishes,
Anna

I had no idea what Vermeil was so I'm glad you explained it...now when in a jewellers I can act all intellectual. :-)
