Simple, comfortable, and with just a hint of hammered texturing, these 14K Gold Vermeil stacking rings were designed to be the epitome of sleek, contemporary styling.
My roots as a small town Floridian became apparent in my first collection. While designing, I found myself wanting to give texture to my metal - not just any texture, but texture reminiscent of an alligator pattern. As my model making continued, I found I strayed from my initial idea, a common theme for me, and soon developed a new pattern. I realized it reminded me of little footprints, so I kept the alligator theme. Apparently, the Floridian who was raised on University Florida Gator football, saw a few alligators in her time, and became a UF 'gator' herself didn't stray far from her roots.
Vermeil is defined as an overlay of gold on sterling silver. This ensures a quality metal as opposed to base metals under your gold. Because of its plating, vermeil should never be polished. If severe tarnish is occurring from the sterling silver tarnishing beneath your gold, an ultrasonic cleaning can be used on a limited basis. To help reduce this tarnishing, we have added a palladium layer between our sterling silver and gold on many items. Your vermeil will look beautiful for a long time to come and will “antique” with age for a charming new look. Just remember to protect it in your anti-tarnish felt bag or a velvet lined jewelry box to avoid scratching, chemicals, hairspray, and make-up.
