the yin yang hoops - gold vermeil
A pair of understated yin yang hoops!
These sculptural hoops are simple enough to be worn with bright prints, yet look like statement pieces when worn with solid colours. They are lightweight, entirely hand-carved, and took a few tries to perfect. Please feel free to wear them everywhere and with everything.

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.
