Care for your jewellery:
Plating is a process where a layer of gold is placed on to coat the surface of another metal. As the jewellery is not 100% solid gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. Anything plated will eventually tarnish with time and wear.
Here are easy ways to keep your gold plated jewellery.
- Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold-plated jewellery.
- Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated necklace.
- Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with metal/plated jewellery and cause it to tarnish. This is also true for sweat, so make sure you remove your jewellery when you exercise, showering or when swimming.
- If your jewellery needs cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft cloth. Stay away from jewellery cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will make your gold plated jewellery tarnish more quickly.
