Do the colors fade?
Your vermeil's color will last forever if you take care of it. Always make sure your gold vermeil jewelry is the last thing you put on when getting dressed.
Do the items rust?
No, 925 silver does not rust. What you will get on silver is tarnishing effect - this is where the silver goes black due to copper inside reacting with air humidity. Things such as bleach, chemicals, and hair sprays can speed up the tarnishing effect.
When storing your silver, always put a small piece of chalk (like children's drawing chalk)/charcoal in with your jewelry as it will soak up the humidity and keep your silver shiny!
How do I maintain my purchased jewelry?
