How to Take Care of Your Gold Plated Jewellery and Make Them Last Longer

Gold plated jewellery has become a huge trend for a lot of reasons. They are inexpensive and impart the same elegance and style as real gold jewellery. And since they do not burn a hole in your pocket, you can actually stock up on many different types and designs of the same. However, one downside with gold plated jewellery is that they tend to chip off or wear away a lot faster than pure metal jewellery.

There are a lot of ways in which you can care for your gold plated jewellery and make them last longer. That way you will be able to wear your jewellery for many more occasions ad also get your money’s worth out of their use. Here are some of the ways in which you can do so.

Wear Your Gold Plated Jewellery Last

It is always recommended to wear your gold plated jewellery last, after you have finished putting on makeup, lotions, hair spray, talc, perfumes, etc. It is because of the chemicals present in these substances that the gold plating can chip off very easily and make your jewellery appear dull and lifeless just after a few times of use.

The best way to avoid that from happening is by putting on your jewellery last, better yet if you do it just before you step out of the house. That way you can ensure that there is no type of chemical contact with your gold plated jewellery.

Don’t Wear Gold Plated Jewellery When It’s Hot Outside

You might not want to, but you must give your gold plated jewellery a miss when it is really hot outside. The temperature is going to make you sweat profusely, which is going to come in contact with your jewellery and make it lose its lustre and brightness.

It is also a good idea to take off your gold plated chains and rings before you jump into the swimming pool since even hard water can cause the colour of the plating to corrode or fade.

Store Them Separately

Don’t store all your gold plated jewellery together, or else they are going to rub against each other and that will cause their plating to chip off. Store them in a container that has separate shelves for each.

These are some of the ways in which you can take care of your gold plated jewellery and make them last longer. So stock up your collection now and look beautiful with stylish accessories wherever you go!
