General tips for long lasting bling:
♥ Make your fashion and Costume jewellery the last thing you put on in the morning, and the first thing you take off at night.
♥ Remove when cleaning, swimming and taking a shower. The chemicals used during these activities could cause immediate tarnishing.
♥ Remove when sleeping. Movement during sleep can cause stress.
♥ Store your jewellery in a cool, dry place.
♥ Wipe your jewellery clean with a soft cloth before returning it to storage to remove any body oils and dirt.
Silver-Plated Jewellery: Caring for Silver Plated jewellery is similar to Sterling Silver jewellery. To remove tarnish from Silver plated jewellery uses the same recommend cleaning techniques for cleaning Sterling Silver. The only major difference is reducing the amount of polish used as over exposure can inadvertently remove the silver plated.
Gold-Plated Jewellery: Caring for gold plated jewellery is very similar to caring for silver-plated.
♥ Keep gold-plated jewellery away from hard surfaces. Bumps and scratches will cause the gold layer to wear away faster.
♥ Store your gold-plated jewellery in a velvet lined jewellery box, or wrap it in a soft material that will prevent scratches.
♥ Lightly wipe your gold-plated jewellery with a damp cotton cloth. This will help to eliminate any dirt or dust from accumulating on the surface and wearing away the gold layer.
♥ Use a non-abrasive jewellery polishing cloth and gently rub the gold-plated jewellery to restore shine.
Proper cleaning, maintenance, and storage are critical for extending its life usage. Some Silver or Gold Plated jewellery will last longer than others depending on the thickness of its layer.
We recommend you use polishing cloths. They are not abrasive and it will remove tarnish without a lot of effort. You can also try a tarnish removing paste found in jewellery stores, but be careful. Some products can be highly abrasive and would remove the plating after each polishing.
