Gold vermeil is a high quality form of gold plating in which a thick layer of gold is coated upon sterling silver.
Does gold vermeil tarnish?
Our self-compassion ring features 14k gold vermeil plating which may dull slightly over time when coming into contact with lotions and chemicals found in some cosmetics. To restore your gold vermeil to its original lustre, we recommend using a gold polishing cloth which is impregnated with gold.
How do I care for my gold vermeil jewellery?
Taking good care of your gold vermeil jewellery will ensure it preserves the longevity of the piece. Make sure to store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. We would also recommend that you remove your gold vermeil jewellery when bathing or applying perfume as this can cause it to have a dull sheen or in rare cases can cause the gold plating to wear off more quickly.
Alternatively, a microfibre cloth such as the one you would clean a tv screen or a pair of glasses, will help to significantly brighten the appearance of your gold vermeil jewellery
