How to keep gold vermeil earrings looking gold for longer?
This is one of our most popular requests and unfortunately there is no easy solution. Our recommendations are as follows:
Keep your earrings away from hand sanitiser, make-up, perfume, creams and alcohol. Try not to keep rubbing or touching your earrings in the ear.
Our gold vermeil is long lasting because it is coated with 2.2 microns of gold. Depending on how careful you are, you can get up to 4+ years out of the gold plating.
Gold Vermeil has a base layer of Sterling Silver which means your earrings can be re-plated for a whole lifetime.
