Silver Vermeil is a fusion of sterling silver and gold. It is crafted by coating sterling silver with a thick layer of gold, typically 18ct or 22ct. This process results in jewellery that emanates elegance and opulence while retaining the affordability and durability of sterling silver.
The term ‘Vermeil’ originates from French and only refers to silver that is adorned with a layer of gold, a traditional technique that has been employed for centuries.
With proper care, Silver Vermeil pieces can retain their brilliance for an extended period and can be polished using an ordinary silver polishing cloth to remove oxidation. We find that treating Silver Vermeil jewellery with the same care and consideration as any precious piece is the best way to look after it. By handling it attentively and taking necessary precautions, you can ensure its longevity and enjoy it for years to come. In the event that your Silver Vermeil jewellery requires refinishing to restore its original lustre, rest assured that this can be easily done.
