As we know by now, social media doesn’t sleep and for shopaholics like me and you, that means constantly staying up to date with trends is a full-time job. Celebrities and influencers on TikTok and Instagram alike are drowning in gold jewellery whether it’s classic hoop earrings, layered necklaces dancing around their decolletages or dainty gold bracelets.
Lucky for you, we are here to educate you on the ever-present trend of gold jewellery, exposing all the tips and tricks when it comes to gold vermeil and our top picks for your winter wardrobe.
Many styles in the BIANKO collection are offered in yellow gold and sometimes rose gold plating. These items are made from a solid Sterling silver base and plated in a layer of 18K gold. This process is also referred to as vermeil (pronounced ver-may). It's different to regular gold plating which can be applied to lesser-quality base metals, such as brass.
The hustle life we all seem to chase has us short on time, so often so that we “don’t have time” or “can’t be bothered” to take off our precious pieces before our night-time routine.
Let us stop you right there, despite what you’ve heard or seen on the internet, no metal is truly waterproof and even regular tap water can damage your pieces. Avoid wearing your pieces in the shower where they are exposed to tap water, soaps, shampoos, and conditioners. Along with its high-quality finish, gold vermeil is hypoallergenic and made to last, making it perfect for everyday wear and go-to glam. Finally, remember that gold vermeil pieces should not come into contact with any active ingredients. These are typically found in serums and facial products so make sure the last step of your morning routine is putting on your jewellery and ensure your hands are clean of residue from actives in your products.
