This is a Gold Vermeil Ring
What's Gold Vermeil?
Vermeil, or "silver gilt," refers to high-quality (pure or sterling) silver plated with a thin layer of Gold. Most vermeil jewelry available now is created by electroplating the silver with Gold, a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two metals together.
Gold Vermeil will wear off because it is plated. The Speed at which a piece fades depends on your body chemistry, climate, and the frequency it is worn.
How to Keep Your Gold Vermeil Jewelry Looking Beautiful:
1. Avoid water: Stay away from swimming pools, the ocean, taking a bath, or showering with your jewelry. Chemicals, in particular, can strip the gold from your jewelry.
2. Avoid wearing during certain activities: Do not wear your jewelry when exercising, sleeping, or cleaning. Perspiration and chemicals from cleaning can contribute to tarnishing.
3. Avoid contact with perfume or moisturizer: Do not spray perfume or moisturizer directly on your jewelry. Make sure to put your jewelry on five minutes after applying these products to prevent chemical contact.
4. Store properly: Store your jewelry in its box, to avoid any excess moisture from the air, which can cause tarnishing. If storing for an extended period without wearing, it is recommended to use a ziplock bag with no air.
5. Dry properly: If your jewelry gets wet with anything other than warm water, rinse it off with warm water first before patting it dry. Make sure the jewelry is fully dry before storing.
How to Clean Tarnished or Dirty Gold Vermeil:
1. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth: Gently clean your gold vermeil jewelry on a regular basis using a soft cloth, such as a sunglasses cloth. This will remove oils and dirt, helping to prevent tarnishing buildup and preserve the plating.
2. Use a polishing cloth for light tarnish: If your gold vermeil jewelry is lightly tarnished, you can brighten it up with a polishing cloth.
3. Avoid chemical jewelry dips: Do not use chemical jewelry dips on gold vermeil, as they can remove the gold plating.
4. Clean with warm soapy water: If your gold vermeil jewelry gets dirty, you can clean it gently with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Avoid using abrasive pads and make sure to pat it completely dry.
