This is a question we get asked often!
Gold vermeil is an overlay of real gold over .925 sterling silver. It is often higher quality jewelry that is made this way (vs brass plated that can easily turn green and irritate the skin) as the gold coating can last many years with proper care.
To care for gold vermeil, always store it in an airtight container when you're not wearing it. Most importantly, alway remove your gold vermeil jewelry when in the pool, hot tub or anywhere you would come in contact with chlorine.
To clean gold vermeil jewelry, use a microfiber cloth (like the one we send you with your order!) to gently remove dirt and particles. Remember to never use chemicals as it can strip the gold finish.
We love working with gold vermeil because it allows us to create high quality beautiful products for an attainable price.
