What is the length of the chain/necklaces?

We use adjustable chains which makes them versatile in terms of how you choose to wear them. On each product page, the length of the chain is stated along with the extender length, which makes it suitable to be worn shorter or slightly longer. We thoughtfully curated pieces that can be styled in different ways. Check out these collections of chains/necklaces here.

MATERIAL KNOWLEDGE

About Brass

Brass metal is for jewellery meant to last as it is strong and durable. It is hypoallergenic and won’t cause irritation which makes it a great option for those with sensitive skin. Brass metal usually has a warm, golden colour that adds richness to any piece. While it tarnishes over time, it can be easily polished to restore its shine. You can read more on how to care for your brass jewellery here.

About Stainless Steel

Stainless steel offers a long-lasting, affordable, and low maintenance jewellery option, owing to its strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. It offers a cool feel that looks sleek and modern. It usually requires minimal maintenance as it is tarnish-resistant. Unlike our demi-fine pieces, it is weightier and much more affordable. You can get more information on how to care for your stainless steel jewellery here.

About Gold Vermeil (Our Demi-Fine Collection)

Gold vermeil features a sterling silver base which contains 92.5% silver, it is durable and won’t wear down quickly. Gold vermeil jewellery looks like solid gold, but at a more affordable price point. Although it has a life-time use potential, it requires special care to retain its shine and quality. More information is provided here

Is gold plating the same as gold vermeil?

Gold vermeil is superior to gold plating. Gold vermeil is used to legally define jewellery with sterling silver base which is 92.5% silver + 7.5 copper or other durable metals with gold plating of about 2.5 microns thick. Gold plating uses other metals aside from sterling silver such as stainless steel, copper, brass with gold plating of at least 0.5 microns thick which is 5x less than gold vermeil. Gold vermeil is superior to gold plating in terms of longevity, value, and quality. Our demi-fine pieces are plated in gold vermeil.

Is gold vermeil considered real gold?

Owing to its thick layer of gold plating, it is regarded in a similar category with real gold jewellery. The major difference between real gold jewellery and gold vermeil jewellery is that vermeil uses sterling silver as the base while real gold uses gold base. Our demi-fine pieces are in 18ct gold vermeil which is 18k (75% pure gold + 15% alloy) gold in 2.5 micron gold plating thickness which is more durable with great quality. 

Why should I buy gold vermeil jewellery?

You should consider REFINE’s gold vermeil/demi-fine jewellery for these reasons: 

  • Gold vermeil is a durable and affordable alternative to real gold jewellery 
  • Due to its thickness in gold, it is durable to last for many years
  • Considering that the base is 92.5% sterling silver, it is hypoallergenic, nickel free, and suitable for all skin types

Is gold vermeil waterproof?

We do not consider our jewellery waterproof. To ensure longevity of your jewellery, we advise minimal contact with water and moisture. Long exposure to water and sweat can induce tarnishing and reduce jewellery shine. You can get more information on preventive care and maintenance here.

 

WARRANTY

What is your warranty period?

We offer a warranty period of 3-months from the date of purchase. You can check here for the terms and condition confining the warranty.
