Awe Inspired Aphrodite Earrings | Gold Vermeil
By Awe Inspired
ENCHANTING. ROMANTIC. DIVINE.
Aphrodite is so much more than the Greek Goddess of love, beauty, and gracefulness. “Aphros” means foam in Greek, as she was born from the sea foam (remember that next time you emerge from the bubble bath). She’s represented by doves, sparrows, and swans. And myrtle trees, as in fertile myrtle.
Our 14k gold vermeil is the creme de la creme. This French technique is superior to common gold electroplating, though the two are often compared. However, in our process, we take it a step further by offering a thicker 3 micron plating instead of 2, which means your vermeil pieces are significantly more durable and long-lasting. Very few other jewelers do this.
Storytime in the Bath:
Our oxygen bathing technique ensures your Awe pieces are luxe and enduring. Oxygen bathing is done to remove all moisture and liquid from the sterling silver before the 14k gold layer is added. It allows the gold to adhere more tenaciously to the silver and prevents tarnishing between layers (which would ultimately show up on the surface). We don't skip steps or take shortcuts - because you deserve the very best.
