Wearing your jewellery is one of the best ways to prevent tarnish, because the natural oils in our skin can help to keep it clean. Always store your jewellery carefully after wearing and that individual pieces are kept separate to avoid scratching and tangling, ensure necklaces and bracelets are fastened. An air tight bag is perfect.
Avoid all contact with water, make up, body lotion, sun creams, perfume, hairspray, deodorant, cleaning products and any other chemicals, as these will tarnish silver and affect the gold plating.
Never wear your jewellery in the shower, when swimming or coming into contact with salt water. Chlorine can permanently damage or discolour your gold vermeil jewellery. It is natural for gold vermeil to fade with time.
