SILVER & ROSE GOLD VERMEIL CUBIC ZIRCONIA MESH BANGLE
I love this piece! Sterling silver mesh formed into a strong flexible 4mm tube, with a 1"/2.2cm fixed Rose Gold Vermeil sleeve set with pave cubic zirconia stones. Silver magnetic clasp will make sure she never falls off. Beautiful! See my Instagram for a video clip.
Vermeil is the name given to Gold-plated Silver. Depending on how the jewellery is cared for and what chemicals and elements it comes in contact with, Vermeil should retain its golden look for several years. However, over time, as with all plating, eventually the coating will begin to wear and the Silver underneath will be seen. Although you will be left with what is still a precious metal item, if you wish to preserve the plating, avoid household detergents, particularly chlorine which can be present in tap water; remove your jewellery before swimming, bathing or showering. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
All gemstones can be damaged through wear and tear. Make sure you check for loose stones or damaged prongs periodically. Always take your jewellery off whenever you are doing activities that might cause damage. Remember that household cleaners and chlorine in swimming pools can damage many gems.
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
