Gemstone and Vermeil (Sterling Silver & 22 kt Yellow Gold Accents) Necklace


Product Description

This quirky gemstone and vermeil necklace is inspired by the fresh, delicious expectation of coming rain. Rivulets of 22 kt gold vermeil accents trace the pathways of water along a backdrop of silky, pearlescent sterling silver and follows them, free flowing, to connect with cool, vibrant water droplets of purple amethysts, purplish red garnets, medium blue iolite and yellow green peridot gemstones. The ancient elements of Air and Water combine to create a necklace of thoroughly striking beauty to delight the thirsty spirit.   

Gordon’s Design Notes: I wanted to gain experience with consumer response to sterling silver jewelry, but was reluctant to create my own line right now. I decided, instead, to start by offering a few products from an existing company. It had to be the right product and company, though. After some research, I learned about Michou, who specializes in ‘art to wear’ for every occasion. Her vermeil jewelry is sterling silver with 22 kt yellow gold accents and contains gemstones. Her exceptional contemporary designs fit perfectly with my vision for sterling silver and gemstone jewelry.

Other Details

Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care Specifics:
Vermeil is created by electroplating a thick layer of 22 kt gold onto sterling silver. Over time, the gold coating can show signs of wear, exposing the jewelry’s silver base color.
Care Specifics:
Reduce wear by putting this piece on last (after applying perfumes, lotions, make-ups, etc.) and take-off first before using skin cleansers, etc. Gently rub with a soft cloth before storing.
Care Specifics:
Remove this piece before swimming in salt or chlorine water or performing activities that cause a lot of sweat, such as running, exercise, etc. Avoid ultrasonic and steam cleaning.
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
To remove tarnish from sterling silver, use a gentle liquid cleaner that is safe for pearls. We will recommend a specific product upon purchase.
