Are these real rubies? Yes! The rubies in these earrings are natural from the earth. As is typical with ruby, these gemstones have been heat treated at the mine before being cut. These are not glass filled to falsely improve their quality. They are not a ruby alternative. These are the real deal!
WHAT IS VERMEIL? Vermeil is a durable, high-quality, but more affordable material than solid 14k gold. Vermeil jewelry has a base layer of silver. So unlike gold-plated or gold-filled pieces (which use whatever material may be cheapest as the base), vermeil jewelry is thoroughly high quality, from silver to gold. Vermeil jewelry has a thicker layer of 14k gold on top of the silver base. We use the industry's highest standard of gold thickness (at least 2.5 to 3 microns). We recommend caring for your vermeil pieces in the same way you care for your solid gold pieces.
