14K gold vermeil statement ring featuring a natural opal cabochon and four faceted white topaz.
Opal is approximately the same hardness as glass. Please be mindful of this while wearing.
Opals are a true miracle in the gemstone world and take roughly 5-6 million years to form. With their high water content, opals encourage the wearer to go with the flow. Put one on when you need to invigorate thoughts, habits or creative blocks with fresh energy.
I describe white topaz as the road map that will direct you to where you want to feel. It’s a personal energetic cleaner that works to remove stagnant energy and heal blockages that may have built up over time. This soothing light energy is helpful when things get sticky.
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver and requires special care. To extend the life of your gold vermeil jewelry, remove when washing hands, showering, applying lotions or perfumes, using harsh cleansers, or working out. Always store your jewelry in a dry place, preferably in individual air-tight bags. Do not use chemical jewelry cleansers or polishing cloths on gold vermeil jewelry.
Gold vermeil jewelry will inevitably fade to a warm silver or a light 10K gold colour. This is the nature of plated jewelry. The rate of wear depends on care, climate and individual body chemistry, and may vary greatly on a case by case basis. As rings are worn on the hand, and are exposed to more frequent rubbing, they will often age more quickly than necklaces or earrings. We do not offer re-plating of our gold vermeil designs and all sales of gold vermeil jewelry are final.
Handmade - please wear with care.
