The nature of gold-plating means you need to take care of your jewellery. If proper care is taken, your pieces will last for years! However, it is important to remember that every metal may eventually oxidise, fade or require expert maintenance.
To help your jewellery last as long as possible remove it when exercising, washing your hands, showering, swimming, applying perfume or doing anything that involves moisture. Apply your perfume or body lotion before wearing your pieces. Remove your jewellery even when sleeping as excessive friction can damage your gold plated jewellery too. Handle your jewellery with clean and dry hands.
Clean your gold plated jewellery regularly. This is important, as proper maintenance will increase the lifespan of your pieces. You can clean your jewellery with a professional jewellery cleaning solution or alternatively you can take a dry cloth and gently clean your pieces from any oils or dust to restore the shine.
Store your jewellery in a secure pouch, box or air-tight container out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
