What is the difference between gold plated, gold vermeil, and gold filled?
Gold Plated: 100% Brass with a thick layer of 18k gold plating on top. Plating should last for years if taken proper care of (see care below)
Gold Vermeil: 100% Sterling Silver with a thick layer of 18k gold plating on top. This option is usually more expensive yet last longer with less trouble for those with brass or nickel allergies. Care is still required.
Gold Filled: Most chain options online are either sterling silver, solid gold or gold filled. Gold filled chains are a higher quality than gold plated and withstand the oils of skin. Gold filled jewelry is composed of layers of gold alloy that is permanently bonded to the brass core with heat and pressure.
How do I care or clean my Shelton Metal treasure?
To prolong the journey of your gold plated, gold filled, or vermeil treasures I recommend removing them before showering or swimming, washing your hands, or applying oils/lotion. These materials will darken or tarnish over years of wear as well as if they are wet over time. You can have them re-plated with a small fee or enjoy the changes with its journey. I do not recommend cleaning with a harsh chemical, use a polish pad or damp cloth.
Solid gold or sterling silver can be cleaned with natural options such as lemon juice, tomato paste, or vinegar/baking soda solution. These metal options can be worn for a lifetime with less care or worry of tarnish if wet.
**Stone care can vary depending on the gemstones hardness and setting-
