How are gold plated earrings maintained and cared for?

The Bijoux Oui costume jewellery team is often asked, how are gold plated earrings maintained and cared for? Latest Sale has compiled this blog post to show customers how.

 

Wearing gold plated earrings whilst showering

Precious metals such as solid gold, 925 sterling silver and platinum will not be entirely damaged if they are worn during showers or long baths. Although not recommended, some jewellery wearers do not remove their jewellery when showering. This is especially the case when wearing solid white gold or yellow gold wedding bands. Often in these cases, the jewellery pieces will not be damaged, but over time, with the daily submersion of a solid gold wedding band in water, this may reduce its natural shine.

With respect to gold plated earrings, special attention should be paid. Unlike solid gold jewellery, showering whilst wearing gold plated earrings can eventually cause the gold layer to wear off completely, therefore it is far better that the delicate nature of gold plating is respected and wearers should do their best to avoid getting their gold plated earrings wet.

 

How long do gold plated earrings last?

Depending on the frequency of use, Bijoux Oui gold plated earrings can last up to three years without the gold plated layer fading or tarnishing. With daily use of the same pair of gold plated earrings, the gold plating layer may fade within 12 to 18 months. With accessible pricing a key benefit of buying Bijoux Oui, gold plated earrings, trendsetting designs that may change year to year are the perfect choice for costume jewellery collection wearers.

The Bijoux Oui, gold plated earrings collection is delivered in an elegant designer jewellery box.
