Sterling silver is a light weight metal made of 92.5 pure silver. It's a beautiful metal that is easily made into some of the most gorgeous jewellery out there. With proper care your silver jewellery can always look its best and last a lifetime.
All Silver can tarnish no matter what the brand, due to the nature of the metal. It mainly happens because of being exposed to atmospheric sulphur found in the air and coming into contact with chemicals.
925 Gold Vermeil
Vermeil jewellery is one of the hottest trends right now as it strikes the perfect balance between quality and value. Many people tend to confuse vermeil with gold plating, and even though they do share a few aspects, there is a big difference in quality, durability, and desirability.
Typically, vermeil is a gold-finished material that is composed of a thick layer of 14k or 18k gold over solid sterling silver. The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewellery apart from simple gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns. Another key factor here is that a vermeil piece is much better to have a sterling silver base (instead of brass or cheaper metals). Exactly what Glitz sells.
**Gold vermeil is a wonderful way to have great jewellery at a reasonable price, especially for large statement pieces, but if you want to enjoy your gold jewellery for years and years, without fear of fading or tarnishing, we recommend that you invest in solid gold (plating, no matter how good, will wear off if worn regularly. Remove gold plated jewellery before swimming, bathing or washing your hands with chemical soaps. Perfumes, creams and hairsprays can also have a negative effect, so always apply before putting on your jewellery. Always remove gold vermeil jewellery before sleep to prevent wear. As the old saying goes, "Jewellery should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off".
If you want to build a collection of high-quality jewellery without the pure gold price tag, gold vermeil is a fantastic option.
