ABOUT GOLD VERMEIL

Gold vermeil is heavily gold-plated sterling silver. Bagtazo uses 2 microns when plating, which is a special plating process that coats the sterling base with more density than traditional plating. With the proper care, vermeil can last indefinitely, even with everyday wear. Gold vermeil is hypoallergenic.

CARE + STORAGE

Clean gold vermeil by gently wiping it with a soft cotton or microfiber cloth. Do not treat with chemicals, as they can remove the gold. Over time, gold vermeil can become tarnished and covered in darkened patches, but a jeweler (including Bagtazo) can restore its original appearance if you wish.

Store gold vermeil in an airtight container or a lined jewelry box, and never swim in a pool or shower while wearing it.

If you accidentally ignore these suggestions and the vermeil eventually starts to fade, send it back to Bagtazo for restoration. (Cost is based on size but averages at $30). Please visit here for more details.

WHAT'S IN A NAME

Metallurgy comes from Latin, metallurgia, which is an adaptation to the Attic Greek word, metallourgรณs, meaning: working in metals, or mining. I studied ancient Greek language in college and it was the hardest thing I've ever done but now I use it as inspiration for Bagtazo all the time.
