How to care about your jewellery
GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY
Gold plated jewellery is a beautiful and affordable option for accessorising, but it does require some special care to keep it looking its best. Here are some tips for caring for your gold plated jewellery:
- Keep it dry: Avoid wearing your gold plated jewellery while swimming, bathing, or doing any activity that involves water. Moisture can cause the gold plating to wear off faster.
- Store it properly: When not wearing your gold plated jewelry, store it in a dry place, such as a jewelry box or a soft pouch. Avoid storing it in direct sunlight or in a humid environment, which can cause it to tarnish.
- Clean it gently: To clean your gold plated jewellery, use a soft cloth or a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away any dirt or oil. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or cloths, which can scratch the surface of the gold plating.
- Don't wear it while exercising: Sweat and moisture can cause the gold plating to wear off faster, so avoid wearing your gold plated jewellery while exercising.
- Avoid contact with chemicals: Chemicals such as perfumes, lotions, and hairsprays can cause the gold plating to wear off faster, so apply these products before putting on your jewellery.
By following these simple tips, you can help keep your gold plated jewellery looking beautiful for years to come.
