Love gold jewelry but feel all confused by different terms and names?

Don’t fret - we’ve got you covered! We’ll give you some easy and fun explanations as to what makes each kind of gold jewelry unique and special, and why PVD processed gold are the ones you should always go for!

PVD Processed Gold

Beautiful waterproof pieces that never loses its luster. PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition is a completely different coating process compared to traditional gold or silver plating. PVD process gold is made by using a special technique that coats Stainless Steel with a layer of vacuum processed gold. It’s very durable and long-lasting. It doesn’t fade, tarnish or discolor. It’s also hypoallergenic too!

So unlike ordinary pieces, you can wear your PVD jewelry even in the harshest of conditions, and it will always look as good as new... And yes, you can shower with it too!

Gold Vermeil

Essentially, Gold vermeil is Sterling Silver jewelry coated with gold. It’s thicker than traditional gold plating and can also be worn daily with proper care. It’s mostly hypoallergenic and more affordable than solid gold. However, gold vermeil jewelry can still tarnish or discolor over time with certain materials and exposure.

Gold Plated

Gold plated jewelry has a layer of gold over other metals. It’s generally the most affordable option when it comes to Gold jewelry. While it can also be worn on a daily basis with proper care, a regular plated Gold jewelry is often prone to discoloration and tarnishing. It can be allergenic due to the mix of metals it contains (mostly copper and brass), and can also chip or peel off and lose its shine when treated and exposed to harsh conditions.

It’s important to note that all of these materials (except PVD process gold) can tarnish or discolor over time with certain materials. Proper care is key to keeping your jewelry in its original condition.
