WHAT IS GOLD VERMEIL?
Gold Vermeil which is a Sterling Silver plated using a thick layer of 24K gold. It is a much better quality and more hardwearing than mass-produced fashion jewellery and is ideal for those with an allergy to normal plated jewellery items. As with all plated jewellery, please wear with care.
Sterling Silver: Sterling silver is an alloy made up of 92.5% silver mixed with copper. Although it will tarnish over time, it's easy to bring back to it's original colour using a Silver Cleaner solution, which can be bought at most high street jewellers or online. Please follow manufacturers instructions. To reduce tarnishing time, keep jewellery in a sealed container, such as a jewellery box, where air exposure is minimal. Scratches and light surface wear, most commonly and rings and bangles, are normal.
Gold Plating: Over time this can wear off to the metal underneath, most frequently with rings and bangle that are more exposed to knocks when worn. Where possible, care should be taken when cleaning and storing gold plated jewellery separately to protect the layer of gold from being worn away or scratched. If you require your item to be re-plated, please get in touch with me to arrange this.
Oxidised Silver: This is silver which is darkened using a chemical process using liver of sulphur. Oxidized sterling silver will wear over time back to the original silver colour, this is to be expected, but can also leave a lovely 'worn' effect. Oxidation can be renewed at your local jeweller at a low cost. Alternatively, you can send you item back to me and I will re-oxidise it free of charge. It will not discolour your skin or cause irritation.
