Please note, gold vemeil jewellery is not solid gold.
All Porter jewellery is genuine 18k gold vermeil which indicates a thick layer of solid gold (23-30 microns) pressure bonded and intertwined over either 925 sterling silver or a stainless steel base.
Not to be confused with regular "gold plated" jewellery, Gold Vermeil jewellery is designed to last several times longer than regular plated or filled jewellery.
Gold vermeil will have more longevity than plated jewellery, however like all metals, is still fragile and requires care to maintain its beauty.
Can be worn in the shower however unless an item is solid gold, wear in the ocean should be avoided as the salt water can be extremely harsh on gold vermeil jewellery. It can also cause the gold to lose its shine and fade.
All Porter jewellery is nickel free. Will never go green, tarnish or rust
