Protect Your Jewelry: All jewelry is vulnerable to the hard knocks of daily life. Protect them by avoiding extreme temperatures, constant banging, scratches and harsh chemicals to minimize damage or wear. Care should always be taken when wearing delicate materials and gold plated jewelry.
Cleaning Your Plated Jewelry: Although gold plated jewelry will not tarnish immediately, it will overtime through wear and tear as the gold-plating can wear off. Think about the paint on a car, same concept, take care of the 18K gold coating and you will have a great piece of costume jewelry for a longtime. Protect your layer of gold and extend it's shine by periodically cleaning each piece and avoiding substances that aren’t PH neutral. We recommend removing your jewelry when bathing in fresh, sea and chlorinated water.
Please do not spray perfumes or apply creams directly to the jewelry. Even if you’re sure your jewelry hasn’t been exposed to any of the aforementioned substances, it has been in contact with your skin—which does perspire and can cause in certain situations for the gold-plating to wear faster.
