What is Gold Vermeil?

Gold vermeil (pronounced vehr-may; it's French!) has some key elements that make it distinctive and superior to common gold plating. Vermeil is a technique originating in the 19th century and a legally regulated term that refers to high-quality gold-plated jewelry. To be legally called "vermeil" in the United States, the jewelry piece must meet ALL of these conditions:

  1. Have sterling silver as its base material. Sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other materials and is a standard material used in high-quality jewelry (versus, e.g., brass or copper).
  2. It must be plated in a gold layer that is at least 10k (10 karats), which means the gold has at least 41.7% gold content.
  3. Have gold plating that is at least 2.5 microns thick. A micron is 1/1000th of a millimetre.

What is 14k gold?

14k gold is a gold metal alloy that contains 58.3% pure gold and 41.7% other metals. So, why isn’t gold 100% pure gold? Why 58.3%? Isn’t that kind of a random number? As it turns out, there’s a satisfying explanation.

So, to answer the question, “Why not 100%” gold?: Well, 100% pure gold is a very soft metal (Mohs 2.5), making it extremely easy to scratch and bend, and it’s a bit pricey. Understandably, you might not be inclined to hand over a few thousand dollars for a piece of jewelry that’s probably going to get scratched and bent out of shape.

So, jewelers have come up with a great solution: Gold metal alloy, which is a mixture of gold and other more sturdy metals. As long as a gold-based metal alloy contains at least 41.7% pure gold (that’s 10k), it can be legally labeled and sold as solid gold.

14k gold is a first-rate choice for jewelry as it is more affordable than higher karat golds while still having a significant amount of gold content. It is also less likely to scratch compared to higher purity golds.

How to care for my jewelry?

All our jewelry has been made to be well-loved by you. With proper care, it will continue to shine. We’re confident in the quality of our pieces, which is why they come with a two-year warranty in case of any potential defects from the materials or workmanship. Follow our jewelry care instructions to enjoy your jewelry for years to come.

Wearing tips:

  • The more intentional you are about caring for your jewelry, the longer it will last.
  • Remove your jewelry before doing any activity that risks physical damage.

Storing tips:

  • When not being worn, store in a safe, dry place to protect against the elements of daily exposure.
  • Store pieces separately to avoid damage.
  • Ensure pieces are completely dry before storing.


Cleaning tips:

  • Proactive maintenance is the easiest way to care for your jewelry.
  • Regularly cleaning your pieces helps to avoid the residue buildup that can dull the original shine.
  • To clean with the polishing cloth, gently buff the entire piece until any discoloration or marks are no longer visible.
  • To clean with the jewelry care kit, spray the liquid onto the jewelry. Use the brush to remove dirt from finer areas and chains. Dry with a soft, clean cloth and then polish with the cloth provided.  
  • Ensure pieces are completely dry before storing.

Do you have a warranty?

Yes, we stand behind the quality of our jewelry. We offer a 2 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

This means that for 2 years from the date of purchase, we’ll take care of your product if any damage to the material or the workmanship of the jewelry occurs.

We work with top manufacturers to create handcrafted, responsibly sourced pieces that are made to last. We’re confident in the quality of our product hence the 2-year coverage. This also means that the warranty does not cover lost items, scratches that come with normal wear and tear (like a bent ring or broken chain), improper use or storage of your product, and any modification to your product done by a third party outside of Junipurr.

If you need to open a warranty claim, email us at junipurrforyou@junipurrjewelry.com

Important:

1. We do not recommend having our products worked on by outside jewelers as this voids any potential for refund or replacement (should a defect develop due to their work). This includes resizing or any type of repair work.

2. Please note that in order for us to continue improving, we may require any defective piece to be sent back to us for inspection and quality auditing.

3. Promotional products may be excluded from our warranty policy.

The return window starts when the shipment is delivered/picked up. You are responsible for shipping it back to us and any associated costs.

To qualify for a return:

  • Items must be in their original condition without signs of wear or damage
  • Items returned by mail must be in all original packaging (tags, box, and pouch included)
  • No individual item of a set can be returned for refund, store credit and/or size exchange, and must be returned as a complete set.
