Vermeil Dot Head Pins 24-26g
2 Inch Head Pins Dia: 0.30mm
Plating 18-24kt over Sterling is a technique that has been mastered by goldsmiths in India for centuries. Sourcing a vermeil dot head pin that can measure up to what we need as designers is not always an easy task. These vermeil pins measure 2 inches long, which is our most popular length for creating a beaded dangle with a wire-wrapped head pin. It is also thin enough to fit our finest gemstones, like our faceted drops, which have such teeny holes.

Some of the pins may need straightening, as they come to us in bulk. We recommend smoothing them by hand or using Nylon Jaw Pliers.
Handmade in India.
Please Note: Vermeil is a plating; it is not solid gold. The gold finish is done by plating the surface of sterling silver. It is fairly durable but can tarnish over time to exposure to the elements, chemicals, and moisture.
Sold in packages of 10 pins.
