This design is also available in Rhodium-plated Sterling Silver.
Vermeil is a process where a layer of gold is placed to coat the surface of Sterling Silver. As the jewellery is not 100% solid gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. Anything plated will eventually tarnish with time and wear.
Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your Gold vermeil jewellery.
Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your Gold vermeil ring, bracelet or necklace.
Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with vermeil jewellery and cause it to tarnish. This is also true for water and sweat, so make sure you remove your Gold vermeil jewellery when you exercise, shower or when swimming.
After every use, clean your vermeil jewellery with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Do *not* use a polishing cloth as this will strip away the plating.
To avoid scratches, wrap your jewellery in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewellery box separate from your other jewellery.
The crescent shape is a type of lune, the latter consisting of a circular disk with a portion of another disk removed from it so that what remains is a shape enclosed by two circular arcs which intersect at two points. The tapered regions towards the points of intersection of the two arcs are known as the "horns" of the crescent. The word crescent is derived etymologically from the present participle of the Latin verb crescere "to grow", technically denoting the waxing moon (luna crescens). The shape of the lit side of a spherical body (most notably the Moon) that appears to be less than half illuminated by the Sun as seen by the viewer appears in a different shape from what is generally termed a crescent in planar geometry: Assuming the terminator lies on a great circle, the crescent Moon will actually appear as the figure bounded by a half-ellipse and a half-circle, with the major axis of the ellipse coinciding with a diameter of the semicircle.
