• Wash your hands before putting on or taking off plated jewellery.

  • To prolong Gold, Rose, Platinum or Rhodium plating, remove your jewellery before showering or washing hands.

  • Avoid wearing your plated jewellery in mineral baths, spas and swimming pools, as the salt water and chlorine may affect the metal finish.
  • Remove your jewellery before exercising or prior to bedtime. Excessive perspiration and body oils can sometimes surface tarnish the piece.

  • Before you put any jewellery on, be sure any lotions, perfumes and make up are absorbed into your skin. Apply all hair products, especially hair spray, before you put on the jewellery.

  • Avoid rubbing plated bracelets and necklaces against each other. Try to prevent plated rings from banging into counter tops and rubbing against car keys buried in pockets and purses.

  • Ideally, store your jewellery in a soft lined box or pouch. Try to keep pieces apart, so that they don’t rub together or tangle up. Store away in a box or keep it wrapped up. A great way to keep your jewellery shiny for longer is in a grip-seal bag.

  • To clean plated jewellery wipe lightly your plated pieces with a cotton cloth to remove surface dirt or dust. Be sure it is completely dry before storing the jewellery again.

  • Do not use a silver cloth or abrasive compounds i.e. baking soda to clean the Gold plated jewellery.
