All our pieces are genuine 18k gold vermeil plated on a sterling silver base. This means they are water resistant, can be worn in the shower and will never rust or turn green as we do not use any copper or nickle in our pieces
WHAT IS 18K GOLD VERMEIL JEWELLERY
All our jewellery is genuine 18k gold vermeil plating which indicates a thick layer of solid gold (23-30 microns) pressure bonded and intertwined over a sterling silver (925) base. Gold vermeil is the highest level of plating you can purchase before being solid gold.
Not to be confused with regular "gold plated" jewellery, Gold Vermeil plating is a technique designed to last several times longer than regular plated or gold filled jewellery.
Please note, gold vermeil jewellery is not solid gold.
HOW TO CARE FOR MY GOLD VERMEIL JEWELLERY
Gold vermeil will have more longevity than plated jewellery, however like all metals, is still fragile and requires care to maintain its beauty.
Our jewellery can be worn in the shower however unless an item is solid gold, wear in the ocean should be avoided as the salt water can be extremely harsh on the plating. It can also cause the gold to loose its shine and fade.
