What is the difference between gold, spun gold and gold plated / vermeil jewellery?

There are two major differences between spun gold jewelry and gold or vermeil plated jewelry.
The first is the amount of gold used. Spinned gold contains, by law, 5% pure gold, while vermeil and plated jewelry contain 0.5% pure gold, 100 times less than spun gold jewelry. For this reason, spun gold jewelry looks like solid gold jewelry, having the orange color typical of plated or vermeil.
The second difference is the method of making these alloys. Spinned gold is made by pressure bonding a thick layer of gold on the outside and a layer of metals on the inside at high temperatures. This process was created to give the material resistance over time. Gold-plated jewelry is made by electrolysis, the gold particles being thus placed on the alloy.
