Jewelry Care Instructions
What is gold filled jewelry?
- Gold filled jewelry is jewelry made by taking a base metal, commonly brass, copper, or silver and coating it in a layer of gold. Compared to gold plated jewelry, gold filled jewelry has a much thicker coat of gold.
To ensure the longevity of your gold-plated/filled jewelry, please take note of the suggested care instructions:
- Avoid chemicals – Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewelry and cause it to tarnish easily. Wear your jewelry after spraying on perfume and/or cologne and your lotion or cream has dried and been absorbed by your skin
- Avoiding water – Gold plated jewelry can easily lose its luster if exposed to excessive water. It is always better to remove the ornament before exercising, swimming or taking a bath
- Avoid rigorous cleaning – After each wear, clean your filled/plated-jewelry with a cotton ball or jewelry cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold-plated/filled jewelry using a jewelry cloth helps restore shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning, you can clean it with a soapy warm cloth or gentle brush
