Vermeil is 24k gold plated sterling silver (2.5 microns thick). Solid gold would be a lot more expensive. It's better than Gold Plated. The core of gold-plated items can be made of different metals, and there is no restriction saying that a particular metal needs to be used. In contrast, gold vermeil should always be made with silver as the main metal used to create the core. Otherwise, the piece cannot be sold as vermeil. This requirement is the biggest difference between general gold-plated items and vermeil pieces.
Our 24k Vermeil Gold is a base of sterling silver with a coating of gold that is 2.5 microns thick. The gold coating eventually wears off, which exposes the silver underneath, the silver tarnishes as it is exposed. The coating wears off quickly on rings that are worn every day, necklaces and earrings for example hold onto the gold for a longer amount of time. Protecting the vermeil's gold coating helps to protect it from tarnishing. For this reason, we recommend not exposing vermeil to rough surfaces or water. Please note that chlorine permanently damages or discolors vermeil, and chemical jewelry cleaners may strip the gold off of the vermeil.

How to Measure your Size?
Buying bracelets is much easier if you know your correct wrist size. When you order a bracelet you want to fit it properly!
Most women feel comfortable wearing a bracelet that is 7 to 7,5 inches (18-19cm) in size, which is the standard size. Men have a wrist size average of 8 inches / 20cm. The bracelet will hang between your hand and wrist bone, which is the most attractive position.
These simple instructions tell you how to measure your wrist properly so you can be sure your bracelets will fit right. When measuring for bracelets, measure tightly where your wrist is broadest. Measure your wrist with a flexible, soft tape measure just below the wrist bone (below the wrist bone is the area between your hand and the wrist bone). This is your actual wrist size, not your bracelet size. We will make your bracelet exactly the size of your wristsize, it will fit perfectly is you measure it correctly! If you want it to be a little loose, or tight, just enter the size you desire when choosing your bracelet. Do not guess your size and prevent disappointment!
Choosing a bracelet size using another bracelet
Find a bracelet that fits you correctly. Set it down flat. Measure the length in centimeters from the start to end of the bracelet. Make a note of the measurement. Order your bracelet in a size as close as possible to this measurement, or select one of our unique pieces we make especially for you and fill in the size in cm's in the available field. If you do not see a field in the product information detail page, it is not possible to get the desired bracelet in a custom size.
