 What is Gold Vermeil Jewelry?

By definition, Gold Vermeil, is thick layer of gold bonded to .925 sterling silver.  As compared to the standard gold plating, which must be 0.5 microns, Gold Vermeil must be 2.5 microns. That’s 5x the thickness of gold plating, making our jewelry highly durable while still cost effective and high quality. For sustainability reasons, we choose recycled silver and recycled gold. 

 
How should I care for my jewelry?

Cleaning your Naut & Chain pieces is easy to do at home. We recommend using a gentle polishing cloth on your gold vermeil pieces, ensuring it is clean and dry. Simply rub your piece in one direction, wiping away any dirt.
