All my Vermeil jewellery features high-quality electroplating that does not fade or chip and is nickel-free, so hypoallergenic. Orders are sent via Royal Mail with tracking and confirmation. Your piece arrives in a complimentary Christine Alexander gift box.
There are a few key features of Cubic Zirconia that distinguish it from Diamond:
Hardness. This causes sharp edges to facets in cut crystals to dull and round off in CZ, while with Diamond the edges remain sharp.
Cut: Cubic Zirconia gemstones may be cut differently from Diamonds. The facet edges can be rounded or "smooth".
Colour: A Cubic Zirconia is often entirely colourless: equivalent to a perfect "D" on Diamond's colour grading scale.
Thermal conductivity: Cubic Zirconia is a thermal insulator whereas Diamond is the most powerful thermal conductor. This is the way most Diamond testers work; by testing thermal conductivity.
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 0several 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.
