How to Care for Plated Jewelry

Gold, silver, and color-plated jewelry may tarnish or fade over time, regardless of brand or price. This is especially true for jewelry made of mixed metals. Avoid exposure to chemicals, moisture, and sweat to prolong their shine. Regular cleaning and polishing can help maintain their appearance.

Care for plated jewelry:

  • Avoid Moisture: Keep away from water, sweat, and moisture to prevent tarnishing.

  • Store Separately: Store each piece separately in a dry, cool place to prevent scratching and tarnishing.

  • Avoid Chemicals: Keep away from perfumes, lotions, and harsh chemicals that can accelerate tarnishing.

  • Gentle Cleaning: Clean gently with a soft, dry cloth after each wear to remove oils and dirt.

  • Limited Wear: Limit exposure to direct sunlight and prolonged wear to maintain the plating's luster.

  • Regular Inspection: Periodically inspect for signs of wear or damage, and avoid wearing during vigorous activities.

  • Professional Care: For extensive tarnishing or damage, seek professional cleaning or re-plating services.
