Taking care of your jewellery

Learn How to Safeguard and Maintain Your Jewelry. Wear and tear is a normal part of wearing jewellery, especially when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Caring for your gold-plated jewelry is essential to maintain its appearance and prevent premature wear and tear. Gold-plated jewelry is made by bonding a thin layer of gold to a base metal, and proper care will help preserve it's luster. We have made this guide so you are able to keep your jewellery for as long as possible.

Avoid Contact with Water:

  • Remove your gold-plated jewelry before showering, swimming, or engaging in activities that involve water. Water exposure can cause the metal underneath the gold layer to tarnish or corrode.

Skip Contact with Chemicals:

  • Avoid exposing your jewelry to harsh chemicals, including perfumes, lotions, and hair products. These substances can accelerate the tarnishing process and damage the gold plating.

Take Off Before Physical Activities:

  • Remove your gold-plated jewelry before engaging in physical activities, especially those that involve heavy sweating or contact with abrasive surfaces. This helps prevent scratches, dents, and other forms of damage.

Cleaning and storage

Clean with Care:

  • Clean your gold-plated jewelry regularly using a soft, lint-free cloth. Gently wipe the surface to remove oils, dirt, and fingerprints. Avoid using abrasive materials that could scratch the delicate gold layer.

Store Separately:

  • Store your gold-plated jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. To prevent scratching, store each piece separately, either in individual pouches or lined compartments within a jewellery box.
