The gold vermeil we use is sterling silver coated in an almost 24kt gold overlay, and is thicker than plated gold jewelry. Care should be taken when cleaning vermeil by not rubbing excessively, to protect the longevity of the gold surface. Clean with warm soapy water, or gold cleaner, and rinse well. Pat dry with soft cloth. Prevention of tarnish is best with vermeil jewelry, so be sure to remove before bed, sports, swimming, or applying perfumes or lotions. Store in an airtight container or jewelry box.
If you want your jewelry to last, remember the old saying: “Jewelry should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you remove”.
Keep it clean by keeping it away from chemicals, lotions, perfumes, excessive humidity, and protect from heavy, hard wearing activities such as sports, heavy work, or vigorous exercise. The main culprits that shorten the life of your jewelry are: never taking it off, wearing it while sleeping, wearing it in hot tubs and pools, and while playing sports. Store in an airtight container such as jewelry box or zip lock baggie while not wearing. When storing long term, make sure to clean and dry thoroughly before storing.
A NOTE ABOUT NATURAL GEMSTONES:
Individuality should be celebrated! Your natural gemstones are naturally, and perfectly imperfect: Unevenness in color or texture or finish in gemstones is normal. Expect to see some internal inclusions, dots, or flecks, and slight variations in size or color. We strive to provide an accurate description of our jewelry, but variations from the piece photographed can occur, and expect to see a slight difference in color from your device or monitor from the real thing.
