Vermiel is silver based with gold plating on top. Contact with water will not oxidize the jewelry, however it is not recommended to wear during exercise or in the shower daily. Vermeil jewelry can be cleaned with non-chemical soap or gentle dish soap and warm water. Use a soft cloth or jewelry cloth to rub the jewelry clean and dry.
925 Silver jewelry is long-lasting and doesn’t need much cleaning however we do not encourage you to expose them to contaminated water such as swimming pools, hot tubs, or hot springs. Chlorine and heat can damage your silver pieces over time. Wearing them in the shower once in a while is okay, but if you do, make sure to dry it off later!

Platinum Plating with Alloy
Platinum jewelry will not easily tarnish or change in colour. Our jewelry is platinum plated over alloy. Alloy is a mix of 2 or more different metals commonly used to manufacture sturdier and more affordable jewelry. To prevent the platinum plating from peeling off we advise you to keep them away from any heat, oil from body, and chemicals.
Stainless Steel does not corrode or tarnish. It's a highly reliable material that does not need extra care to maintain. However, it may scratch especially if kept with other jewelry or other items. It is best to store them separately in a bag or pouch.
Gold PlatedGold plated jewelry should be cleaned on a daily using a cotton ball or a very soft cloth. Avoid the use of a polishing cloth as this can rub off the plating of the jewelry long term. Water reduces the shine of the jewelry and could eventually take off the plating over time. However wearing it a few times in the shower will not damage your piece but decrease its shine.
