What are vermeil beads?
Vermeil is .925 sterling silver, heavily electroplated with 10Kt fineness, or more, of yellow gold. Vermeil products carried by Custom Equine Works are usually in the 18Kt to 24Kt range of fineness. The thickness of the gold electroplate must be a minimum of 2-1/2 microns of fine gold. All Vermeil Beads are directly imported from Bali Indonesia.
What are Hill Tribe Silver beads?
Every bead and component is beautifully hand-crafted by expert silversmiths from the Hill Tribes in Thailand. Made from a higher purity silver than sterling silver, fine silver (93-99%) offers a brilliant metallic luster and a greater resistance to tarnish.
