Jewelry Care Instructions

Caring for your 18K gold plated jewelry properly will help maintain its beauty and shine over time. Here are some care instructions to follow:

  1. Apply Perfume and Cosmetics First: Put on your makeup, perfume, and lotions before wearing your jewelry. Chemicals in these products can accelerate the tarnishing of the gold plating.

  2. Store Properly: When you're not wearing your jewelry, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use a jewelry box or pouch to prevent scratches and tarnishing.

  3. Clean Gently: If your jewelry needs cleaning, use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently wipe away dirt or tarnish. Avoid abrasive materials that can scratch the surface.

  4. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Don't use harsh cleaning solutions, ultrasonic cleaners, or jewelry dips, as these can strip away the gold plating. Stick to mild soap and water for cleaning if necessary.

  5. Rotate Your Jewelry: If you wear the same pieces frequently, consider rotating your jewelry to minimize wear and tear on any one piece.

  6. Replate if Needed: Over time, the gold plating may wear off. If your jewelry starts to lose its shine, you can have it professionally replated to restore its luster.

Remember that 18K gold plating is a thin layer of gold over another metal. With proper care, your jewelry can maintain its beauty and shine for an extended period.
