Jewellery Care Tips

Caring for 18K real gold plated jewellery requires gentle handling and proper maintenance.

Here are our top tips:

Keep it dry

Avoid wearing your jewelry when swimming, showering, or exercising, as moisture can cause the gold plating to tarnish or wear off faster.

Store properly

Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, preferably in a jewelry box or pouch to prevent scratching and oxidation.

Avoid chemicals

Remove your jewelry before using household cleaners, perfumes, lotions, or hairsprays, as these chemicals can damage the gold plating.

Clean gently

Use a soft cloth or a jewelry cleaning solution specifically designed for gold-plated jewelry to gently wipe away any dirt or oils. Avoid harsh cleaning methods or abrasive materials that could scratch the surface.

Limit exposure

Minimize exposure to sunlight and heat, as prolonged exposure can cause the gold plating to fade or discolor over time.

Rotate your pieces

Avoid wearing the same gold-plated jewelry every day to give the plating time to rest and prolong its lifespan.

Professional maintenance

Consider having your jewelry professionally cleaned and re-plated periodically to maintain its shine and luster.


Avoid wearing during sleep

While it may be tempting to keep your jewelry on while sleeping, it’s best to remove it to prevent accidental damage or tangling.

By incorporating these additional tips into your jewelry care routine, you can help ensure that your 18K real gold plated pieces remain beautiful and radiant for years to come.
