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.
