Color Crush: Vermeil
It’s hard to decide which we look forward to more: the crisp splendor of the season or fall fashion… But one thing’s for sure, there’s nothing we love more for autumn than a brilliant touch of gold! With our stunning Vermeil pieces, your jewelry style can echo the gorgeous golden countryside this time of year.
Vermeil (pronounced “ver-may”) is a luxurious thick yellow gold plated sterling silver and is a more affordable option for Mommies that love yellow gold. Vermeil has a long and storied history dating back to ancient Greece (at least), and was highly popular for both jewelry and home goods during the Victorian era. But today at POSH we use it for its combination of eye-catching beauty and practical durability.
A note about Vermeil: Everyone’s skin is as unique as the customized jewelry they wear! Because of this fact, there are some physiological and lifestyle factors to consider before purchasing Vermeil in order to make sure it’s right for you and will have a long and enduring life. Although this is a thickly plated style, certain factors can cause it to wear down over time. If your (or the gift’s recipient’s) skin is more acidic or prone to oiliness; if you tend to heavily use fragrant lotion or hairspray or other cosmetic products in the area you’d wear your jewelry, you might want to consider other options. If you’re an active type and looking for jewelry you can wear round the clock, even during your workouts, you should go for our 14k Yellow Gold products — particularly if your regular activity includes swimming or running, which can add to the wearing down of your piece.
We know you will fall in love with Vermeil as much as us! xoxo, POSH
