Wheat Silver Necklace, 'kissed' with 24k Gold, 16-18"
The Wheat Collection features hand-hammering and simple, sleek designs that make for a very modern collection without losing the inspiration in the past. Inspired by the ancient metal-smiths who used grains to fill their jewelry and give it form, Gurhan expands the concept further to create designs that transport the functional forms into aesthetic components.

24k gold is such an important part of our DNA, that most of the GURHAN Silver styles are ‘kissed’ with 24k gold. What do we mean by “kissed”? Simply, it means that they may be either vermeil plated or bonded with 24k gold. Vermeil plating refers to the common process of chemically adhering gold to silver. Bonding entails fusing an actual sheet of gold to the silver. While bonding creates a much thicker application of gold than vermeil, our vermeil plating process applies a substantial layer of gold, befitting a precious jewelry line, and in keeping with FTC guidelines (2.5 microns).
As dedicated advocates of responsible sourcing, we strive to use recycled gold whenever we can. Our supplier certifies its sources so you can share our confidence in purchasing sustainable, responsible gold.
