- To minimise any scratching or tangling to your jewellery, ensure necklaces and bracelets are fastened and stored on their own.

GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY
Care should always be taken when cleaning gold plated jewellery to protect the layer of gold from being worn away or scratched.
Although gold plated jewellery will not tarnish over time like silver, the gold appearance may slightly fade depending on wear and exposure to chemicals and cosmetics.
To clean your gold plated jewellery carefully use the soft lint-free cloth provided after every wear, this will help maintain or bring back its shine. If necessary, you can use a mild washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time. I do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents on gold plated jewellery as this can remove some of the plating.
Store your gold plated in the air tight bag provided and away from sunlight.
All pieces can be re plated at a very small cost if needed
