Care Instructions for Gold-Plated Jewelry

**Care Instructions for Gold-Plated Jewelry**

Gold-plated jewelry combines the elegance of gold with affordability, but it requires proper care to maintain its appearance and durability. Follow these care instructions to keep your gold-plated pieces looking their best:

1. **Avoid Moisture**: Remove your gold-plated jewelry before swimming, showering, or engaging in activities that involve water. Moisture can cause the gold plating to tarnish or peel over time.

2. **Keep Away from Chemicals**: Avoid contact with harsh chemicals, such as perfumes, lotions, and cleaning products. These substances can damage the gold plating and affect its shine.

3. **Store Separately**: Store your gold-plated jewelry separately to prevent scratching and tangling. Consider using individual pouches or compartments to keep pieces from coming into contact with each other.

4. **Clean Gently**: Use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently wipe your jewelry after wearing it. This helps remove oils and residues that can dull the shine. Avoid abrasive materials that could scratch the surface.

5. **Limit Contact with Hard Surfaces**: While gold-plated jewelry is durable, it's still susceptible to scratches. Be cautious not to bump or rub your jewelry against hard surfaces.

6. **Avoid Friction**: Minimize friction between your gold-plated pieces and other jewelry, especially when storing them together. Friction can wear down the plating over time.

7. **Apply Perfume and Makeup First**: Put on your perfume, lotion, and makeup before wearing your gold-plated jewelry. This prevents contact with chemicals that can affect the plating.

8. **Remove During Physical Activities**: Take off your gold-plated jewelry during sports, workouts, and other physical activities to prevent sweat and excessive friction.

9. **Professional Cleaning**: For a deeper clean, consider having your gold-plated jewelry professionally cleaned by a jeweler. They can restore its shine and remove any stubborn residues.

Remember that gold-plated jewelry has a limited lifespan compared to solid gold pieces. With proper care, you can extend the life of your gold-plated jewelry and enjoy its beauty for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our customer service team.
