Vermeil jewelry achieves a similar look to 18-karat gold without the high costs involved. Gold vermeil is pure 925 sterling silver metal with a thick gold coating. Our jewels are dipped in 18-karat gold and e-coated to ensure the products longer lifespan. Vermeil jewelry is durable and high in quality; however, it is important to treat it with a little extra care. Always make sure to remove your gold vermeil jewelry when bathing or applying lotions and perfumes. Your gold vermeil pieces should also be the last thing you put on when getting dressed. To keep your jewelry looking as fresh as possible we recommend placing the piece safely inside the VEERT pouch.
