Vermeil Care GuideUpdated a year ago

How to ensure your vermeil jewelry lasts forever

Your jewelry is designed to withstand the normal rigors of modern life, but keep in mind that they are still made from precious metals and delicate stones, so a bit of TLC wouldn’t go astray.

Your vermeil pieces should ideally not come in contact with excessive sweat or water. Take off your vermeil before you shower, wash hands, or exercise. Apply cleaning agents, beauty products, water and chemicals before you put on your pieces. Wait five minutes after applying lotions to put on your pieces.


How to clean vermeil jewelry

To clean your vermeil, wipe it down thoroughly with cotton cloth every now and then. Avoid using a brush or coarse fabrics to clean vermeil jewelry as this can potentially scratch the surface.

Although rare, sometimes individual body chemistries can react with the metal and cause a reaction. Pregnancy, thyroid disorders, hormone levels, medications and more can affect body alkalinity versus acidity, and may cause a reaction with your piece. It’s definitely a wild-card and is based on the individual!


How to store your vermeil jewelry

Always store your vermeil in a dry area, like your Aurate travel pouch, to prevent exposure to the elements. Don’t keep it stored for too long though – it was made to be worn!


Help! My vermeil clasp is stuck

Don’t stress – this is common for vermeil styles! Continue pressing down on the clasp, and once it opens for the first time, you’ll be set for life.
