As mentioned, vermeil is a high quality gold finish that must adhere to the following criteria in the USA: thickness of at least 2.5 microns and gold purity of 10K or higher. Our vermeil exceeds both requirements in that it is 3 microns thick and 24K gold.
Care: Vermeil on huggies should last a very long time without much hassle. As with most precious metal jewelry, you should avoid chlorine, such as in the swimming pools, as they may interfere with the shine of gold. Ideally you would also not shower/wash hair with them on, but that is not such a big deal – I do it quite often with my pair on and it is fine.
When not in use, it is best to keep them in a poly bag to prevent oxidation.
Cleaning: do not use Jewelry cleaning cloths on these earrings. Just wipe down with damp cloth.
Vermeil is a great option for those who have allergies to other metals as the gold layer will isolate the silver underneath.
Vermeil is also a great option for those who love gold but without the gold’s price tag.
