1. Don’t spray or apply perfume while wearing your gold-plated jewelry. We recommend that you put your jewelry on after you have applied your favorite perfume so that the chemicals in the perfume can’t interact with your jewelry’s metal.
2. Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold-plated ring, bracelet or necklace.
3. Similar to the tarnishing effects of perfume and hand lotions, sweat and treated water can also tarnish your jewelry. It’s important that you remember to remove your gold-plated jewelry when you exercise or before you go swimming.
4. After every use, clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt the piece of jewelry has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold-plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth will also help restore shine.
5. If your jewelry needs a deeper cleaning, you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak the piece of jewelry for a few minutes, and then gently wipe away dirt and grime. Don’t use jewelry cleaners or antibacterial soap as they can compound the tarnishing.
6. To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning, or keep it in a separate jewelry box.
