Gold vermeil heart necklace, 24ct gold plated solid sterling silver 18mm crown heart necklace setting and option to create a kit. Includes a jump ring already attached so all you need to do is add a necklace chain and your resin heart. Does not include ashes etc or chain as shown in the pictures, but you can buy gold vermeil necklace chains from us here. Please be sure to explain to your customers that this is gold-plated silver, not solid gold! Blog coming soon on the differences between gold plated base metals, filled gold, gold vermeil, solid gold and pure gold. You can buy a gold polishing cloth from us here!
You can even purchase stock images here that you can mark with your own watermark to get orders before you’ve made one yourself, just be sure to let customers know they’re mock-ups (examples). This necklace will be added to our stock images soon.
Making A Heart Necklace
You can purchase the pendant setting by itself, it’s perfect for use with our 18mm heart moulds. Please let me know in the comments when you order if you’d like a patina (antique effect) applied, this is no extra charge. The rest of the kit contents are listed below if you’d like to buy it all separately and this can be more cost-effective if you’re making pieces professionally or making several for family members. We include a single mould with the kits but it’s easier to make two hearts at once to offer your client a choice, so you may wish to purchase the double mould. You may want to order the complete set of resin sparkle mix blends, and other supplies, a pack of cocktail sticks, and larger bottles of resin for example.
If you’d like to buy this necklace setting as a kit you’ll receive:
- 1 x gold vermeil crown point 18mm heart necklace setting with jump ring
- single 18mm heart cabochon mould
- a dust mask
- 1x pair of vinyl gloves
- 3 cocktail sticks
- resin sparkle mix sample (random colour)
- 10g bottle of UV resin
- some sandpaper
- label backing paper here
- 1x sachet Breastmilk Preservation Powder and these Breastmilk Preservation Powder PDF Instructions (breastmilk kit only)
You can also request some practice ashes here. You’ll also need to provide yourself (not included):
- an epoxy resin starter kit or a gel nail lamp
- your clients’ elements an any additional sparkles, precious metal leaf or dried flowers etc
- a curved burnisher for rubbing over the bezel cup

18mm Heart Necklace Setting
Size: 19x21mm (fit stone approximately 18x16mm), jump ring is 6mm, 1mm thick.
I find that the gold vermeil heart range sells for at least £120/piece with a necklace chain, so it is worth the investment if you are good at upselling extras to your clients. Use our stock images to encourage sales.
You can choose to include a single compatible heart mould or add a double 18mm heart cabochon mould here. Please note the sizing info in the description!
Gold Vermeil – 925 Sterling Silver Plated With Gold
The silver in these settings is 925 sterling ecosilver, which is 100% recycled, plated with yellow or rose (red) gold with a thickness of one micron. In the UK this is known as gold vermeil but must be advertised as “silver plated with gold” or “gold plated silver”. Please see our blog on Types of Solid Silver which explains the care instructions for the silver and the metal content, Types of Gold explains more about vermeil. You can advertise these as 925 ecosilver or 925 sterling silver, please remember that because they are only one micron thick gold plated, they can’t be referred to as “vermeil” in the USA. Please check your own country’s laws on selling gold plated silver items!
Gold Vermeil Necklace Chain
Although this kit doesn’t include a chain, if you’re selling you might want to include a chain free of charge with necklaces as clients will usually expect a chain. We found on Tree of Opals that even if we advertised a piece as not including a chain, we used to still receive complaints that one was not included. You can buy a lightweight gold vermeil necklace chain here on Etsy or purchase one of our gold vermeil necklace chains here. We find you can make a little extra income from upselling chain upgrades and other accessories and ensure that your client has a strong, sturdy chain according to their needs, perhaps include a 16″ chain in with the price and offer to increase the length for a little extra cost.
Breastmilk necklaces we would definitely always advise are sold with strong chains like ours as many people ordering breastmilk jewellery will have babies and toddlers who will try to grab them! Just make sure that your client knows the necklaces are not child-safe, should be worn with care and common sense and not used as fiddle beads/teething jewellery! I tried to always make the difference between breastmilk jewellery and breastfeeding jewellery clear!
