Gold Vermei

Material Description

Not to be confused with regular gold plating, our vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a thick layer of 18k solid gold on sterling silver. It lasts longer and provides the look and feel of gold jewelry at a fraction of the price.

What to know about wearing gold vermeil jewelry

  • Vermeil will naturally tarnish over time, especially when exposed to environmental factors like air pollution, moisture, and items that contain sulfur.
  • It is easy to restore the shine of gold vermeil jewelry.

How to store gold vermeil jewelry

  • Store in a safe, dry place—such as an anti-tarnish pouch or case—with the anti-tarnish strip that came with your purchase. This will help to protect your pieces when they are not being worn.
  • All of our Jewelry Cases have an anti-tarnish microsuede lining for ease of care.

How to clean gold vermeil jewelry

  • Proactive maintenance is key. To keep tarnish from setting in, be sure to clean your pieces regularly by wiping them with a soft, damp cloth.
  • To remove tarnish, buff gently with a polishing cloth, or use our Jewelry Care Kit.
  • Worth noting: polishing cloths can be abrasive so apply gentle pressure and don’t over polish.
