GOLD VERMEIL TREE OF LIFE STUD EARRINGS
These lovely Gold Vermeil stud earrings are perfect for everyday wear. Approximately 15mm in diameter, the post is at the top of this stud rather than in the centre, so they will sit slightly lower on the lobe.
Handmade in Hatton Garden, London. A matching bracelet is also available.
The Tree of Life is a beautiful symbol in Celtic Art. The Branches high in the sky and the roots deep in the ground symbolise the connection between heaven and earth.
In Celtic Art, the Tree of Life also stands for the giver of shelter, food and warmth.
At the same time, the Tree of Life represents the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
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.
