What is gold-plated jewelry and how to care for it?

Gold-plated jewelry is metal jewelry that has a layer of another metal on top, in this case liquid gold, killing allergy-causing microorganisms. Because the layer of gold plating is very thin, gold-plated jewelry is much more affordable than jewelry made from real gold. An additional protective layer is also applied to the gold coating so that the jewelry is optimally protected against scratches and damage. That is why they retain their shine, do not scratch, do not remain 'black', do not cause an allergic reaction, and cubic zirconia, the stone most often used in gold-plated jewelry, retains its shine for a long time.

In our online store you will find gold-plated rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

How to keep gold plated jewelry beautiful?

How long your gold-plated jewelry will remain beautiful depends on various factors. For example, the thickness of the gold coating or external influences such as rain. It is important that you take good care of your jewelry and handle it carefully. Be sure to store your jewelry neatly and keep it in a closed, dark place, such as a jewelry box or purse. You can also use the beautiful velvet jewelry bag that you will receive when you order jewelry from us. Below we share some tips to make your jewelry beautiful. Remove jewelry:

✔️ when showering, swimming or washing hands.
✔️ gold plating is sensitive to water and chlorine - if you come into contact with chemical products, remove the jewelry and do not put it back until your hands are dry
✔️ spraying perfume or hairspray;
✔️ if lotion or body cream is applied;

✔️ during exercise. Sweat negatively affects the gold coating and its color;
✔️ while sleeping. If you are a long sleeper, be sure to remove your earrings, because the earlobe can stretch while sleeping, you won't even feel it.
