Dhahab jewellery is crafted using 18k Gold Vermeil, which has a foundation of 925 sterling silver. Every piece undergoes a generous plating process, where a minimum of 2.5 microns of gold is applied along with a protective top layer. The gold layer is 5 times thicker than that of typical gold plated jewellery, guaranteeing exceptional durability. Additionally, all Dhahab jewellery is hypoallergenic and free from nickel.
Regular plated jewellery sees a thickness of 0-1 microns, which is why you'll find these pieces tarnishing. In addition, they're crafted in a less durable base metal such as brass or copper. Gold vermeil is therefore regarded as a premium metal and crafted to last all while at an accessible price point.
