Care should be taken to keep vermeil jewellery care is important for maintaining your gold vermeil jewellery. Care should be taken to keep vermeil jewellery separate from other jewellery as the plating is susceptible to wear. Gold vermeil jewellery will tarnish like silver (as it is sterling silver, plated in 18ct gold) so it is best to keep it in an airtight box or bag. Avoid wearing gold plated jewellery when swimming or bathing. Perfumes, creams and hairsprays can also have a negative effect, so always apply before putting on your jewellery. If you would like to clean your gold vermeil jewellery wash it with a small amount of gentle dish soap or non-chemical soap and warm water. Rinse it well. Use a soft, non-abrasive cloth and gently rub the surface in a circular motion to clean. Make sure it is fully dry before returning to its box or airtight bag for storage. Do not use a silver cloth as it will quickly remove the gold plating. Plating will naturally fade with wear. read more
