Caring for Gold-Plated Jewelry
Store your gold plated jewelry in a zip-lock plastic bag and squeeze out any excess air before sealing it shut. Minimizing oxygen in the bag will help keep the gold plated jewelry bright and shiny.
Remove gold-plated jewelry before showering, swimming and working out to lengthen the lifespan of your piece. Make sure you spritz your perfume first before wearing your jewelry.
Some gold-plated jewelry may be plated on sterling silver. Wearing these pieces often could help maintain the look of your piece, as the oil in your skin can help prevent tarnishing on the silver.
Gold-plated titanium does not tarnish easily at all, and can be worn in water. Titanium is a very durable metal that is resistant to corrosion and scratching.
Gently rub the gold-plated jewelry with a soft, non-abrasive, and lint-free cloth. Do not use a polishing cloth, as it will strip away the plating.
Heavy Duty Cleaning
Soak gold-plated jewelry in water mixed with sudsy dish soap for 1 minute to break down dirt and grime. Don't use antibacterial soap, as the chemical may break down the plating.
Rinse with clean warm water. We recommend using a clean bowl for this so you don't drop it down the drain!
Pat dry with a clean, lint-free towel.
