Caring for Gold Plated Earrings is fully explored in this post due to popular demand and many questions. Gold plated jewellery may need more care than solid gold jewellery because the gold layer applied to the metal base is a thin coating that may wear off. As with all jewellery, gold plated jewellery should be stored away safely.
For enhanced maintenance, avoid contact with chemicals because they may cause the gold plaiting to wear off more quickly. This includes cologne or perfume, moisturizers, and detergents among other things. Be careful and do not take your gold-plated jewellery to the beach or pool. Saltwater and chlorine will react negatively with gold plated jewellery and may cause the thin layer of gold to wear off. Clean your gold-plated jewellery with a non abrasive cloth and a specialist jewellery polish cleaner.
