Care

Gold Sisters jewellery is made to very high-quality standards. 

 


Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil is sterling silver as a base material that gold plating that is at 3 microns thick. 

With proper care and maintenance, gold vermeil jewellery can keep sparkling through the years. Here are our top tips for cleaning and storing your gold vermeil jewellery.

Harsh chemicals can ruin the gold plate right away. So that's why I advise you to remove your gold vermeil jewellery before showering or swimmingWhen you aren’t wearing your gold vermeil jewellery, store it in a fabric-lined box, or a soft cloth away from dust and dirt. An airtight box is ideal as it can minimise the oxidisation of the silver base.

To prevent tarnishing, wipe gold vermeil jewellery after use. The accumulation of body oils, cosmetics and grime can cause the jewellery to lose its sparkle and to fade.

Avoid wiping gold vermeil items with coarse fabrics or chemicals as this can strip the gold off. Only use a 100% cotton or microfiber cloth to very softly wipe the item and warm soapy water.

Never use chemicals to clean gold vermeil jewellery. This refers to makeup, washing liquid and even chlorine from swimming pools. These can discolour the jewellery and strip the gold off.

Using the highest quality materials and process, Gold Vermeil is far more durable than other gold plated options and can last for years. However, if worn continuously (especially rings) the gold plate can start to wear away after 6 months.

GOLD FILLED

Earring hoops and necklaces are made from 14k gold filled gold. Gold filled is definitely real. There's a thick layer of real, solid 14k gold on the outside of a brass core. The 14k gold that's on the outside of gold-filled is the same gold as you would get from a solid 14k piece.

GOLD PLATED
Charms and huggie earring are gold plated. All of our plated items are made from brass or sterling silver over 18k to 24k gold. The item are all nickel and lead free.

Gold plating is a a thin layer of high-quality nickel plated onto the base metal. Then the jewellery is dipped into a final layer of gold and a positive electrical charge is used to fuse the gold onto the base metal. 

CARE
Please note it requires some care to keep it looking its best. Remove jewellery when sleeping, exercising, swimming, and showering.
Avoid contact with perfume, lotion, & any chemicals, such as household cleaners.
Never use a “jewellery” cleaner – it will actually strip away the plating. Instead, to lightly clean use a soft, lint-free cloth. Wear your jewellery with care, for example remove bracelets when typing as banging can cause wear to plating & pave crystals.
