WHAT DOES GOLD FILLED MEAN
Gold-filled jewelry is much more valuable than gold-plated. In fact, there is almost 100 percent more gold in gold-filled items than is found in gold-plated items. Just as gold-plated jewelry is plated with gold, gold-filled jewelry is as well, but there is a big difference between the ways these products are made.
Gold-filled items have a much thicker layer of gold on them, and the gold is a much higher quality. In fact, it is just a step down from solid gold when it comes to quality and value. Speaking of solid gold, pure gold is very soft and is not a good choice for jewelry; that is why an alloy is almost always used for gold jewelry items, even in jewelry pieces worth an incredible amount of money.
Gold-filled items also use a gold alloy, which can be very strong depending on the karat of the gold that is used. Remember that the lower karats of gold tend to be a bit stronger, 14 karat gold being an example. A higher karat of gold indicates a higher purity, and while that means the gold piece itself is more valuable, the metal will be a little softer. As a frame of reference, keep in mind that 24 karat gold is pure gold and, thus, the softest form of gold available. Buyers who are looking for a more durable jewelry piece may want to opt for a lower karat.
You won't need to worry about gold-filled jewelry tarnishing, and even if you have an allergy to certain metals, you won't have to worry about allergies from metals such as nickel. You can't say the same about gold-plated jewelry.
Our Vermeil jewelry has a Sterling Silver base, the former being plated in gold. The longevity of plated jewelry depends on proper care to avoid tarnishing. Always remove your Vermeil jewelry before washing your hands, bathing, swimming, or using household cleaning products. Additionally, please note that certain lotions and oils may strip the plating from your jewelry. To prevent scratches, we advise that you store your jewelry in a velvet lined jewelry box or pouch.
All items are shipped in our logo pouch. Fine jewelry is packaged in a sleek black box. We offer gift-wrapping at additional charge of $5.00. Once the item is wrapped it cannot be resealed once opened.

You can also reference the ring size link on our homepage to see the conversions. We cannot be responsible for determining your ring size. Choosing the correct ring size is responsibility of the customer, as people differ in the way in which they prefer their rings to fit…some customers wear them loosely, while others like to wear them more tight.
