Gold Vermeil

Sterling Silver 

Gold Plated 

Gold Vermeil is far more durable than other gold plated options and can last for years. Although gold vermeil will not tarnish like silver, it may become dirty and fade slightly with wear.


Sterling silver, even real . 925 sterling silver, will always tarnish. While pure 99.9% silver does not tarnish, any sterling silver will tarnish over time as a result of the metal mixed in. However, there are many ways to keep sterling silver from tarnishing.


Gold plated jewelry items will tarnish over time. Gold plated items have a base metal underneath the gold plate, like brass, which makes the jewelry piece stronger and less likely to bend, though these jewelry metals tarnish.


*Gold vermeil is sterling silver that has been gold plated. As with sterling silver, preventive care is important for maintaining your gold vermeil jewelry.
