To maintain the golden color on your gold plated jewellery, we advise you to take it off when showering, swimming, sleeping or before working out. Avoid exposure to moisture, by storing them in a small, airtight, ziploc-style bag. Apply and let dry your perfume or any other beauty products (hairspray, moisturizer etc.) before putting on your gold plated jewellery. Although our one micron thick platings are stronger than the majority of gold fashion jewellery, however, care must be taken! Absolutely avoid polishing them with a polishing cloth as this will damage the plating.
