Wash your hands before taking off or putting on your jewellery
Your Jewellery should be the very last thing you put on, any lotions, deodorants, perfumes, household items can seriously harm your gold plated jewels and discolor them. (try to keep them dry!)
When your jewellery is not in use, store in a soft cloth or in a box to avoid scratches., keep them stored separately to other jewels as metal rubbing against metal affects the jewellery,
Avoid storing in a humid room- this will increase the lifespan!
After every wear, clean your plated jewellery or Gold fill Jewellery with a cotton ball or a soft jewelry cloth which will help to restore shine!
Avoid using any polishing cloths, cleaners, soaps as chemicals used in these will strip away plating and discolour them
Be gentle when cleaning your plated jewellery, rub not buff!
If you have gold fill items (not plated) and would like to further clean, use warm water and very mild soap, soak for less than one minute, use a soft brush gently to clean away any dirt.
Avoid swimming, showering, washing up and, exercising in your gold plated jewels, Keeping them dry will prolong their life and keep them shining bright!
