CAN I WEAR MY 14K ROSE GOLD VERMEIL EVER YDAY?
Yes, you can wear your 14 karat rose gold jewelry every day! However, we recommend taking it off before swimming or showering to prevent exposure to chemicals, saltwater, and chlorine. These chemicals can cause pink metals to fade over time, so keeping your jewelry well-maintained and stored in a dry location is essential.
DOES 14K ROSE GOLD TURN SKIN GREEN?
Unlike pure gold, 14K rose gold jewelry will likely become green over time. It comprises ten parts alloy, including silver, palladium, bronze, copper, zinc, and nickel, and 14 parts pure gold. When these metals contact air, they oxidize and cause a green tint. Wearing your rose gold jewelry often, especially in water, speeds up the process. If you notice a greenish tint, simply clean your jewelry with a polishing cloth.
However, protective measures can prevent this, such as regularly cleaning your jewelry and storing it in an airtight container. You can also buy 14K gold jewelry coated with rhodium, which is a metal that doesn't oxidize. The rhodium layer may fade over time, so you would need to get your jewelry re-coated every few years.
