What is gold-plated jewelry?

Gold plated jewelry is made from a base metal like brass or nickel, coated with a layer of gold. Brass is one of the most common base metals thanks to its very good strength and malleability.

How to clean your gold-plated jewelry?

Cleaning gold-plated jewelry is easy to do. You can use a soft cloth and mild soap or a product specially designed for cleaning precious metals.

If you choose to use soap and water, make sure your hands are clean before touching the jewelry. Then immerse the jewelry in hot water with a little dishwashing liquid (about 1/4 teaspoon per cup). Let it sit for about five minutes before rinsing it again with warm water and drying it with a soft cloth.

If you prefer to use a universal cleaner specifically designed for cleaning precious metals such as silver or gold-plated coins, follow these steps:

  1. Spray some cleaner on an old toothbrush, then gently scrub the dirt off your piece until it is clean; don't forget the crevices!
  2. Rinse thoroughly under tap water until there are no more soap bubbles when rubbed between two fingers; This will help remove residue left behind from chemicals used during the manufacturing process, so they won't damage other items stored nearby later if not cleaned over time.

How to store your gold-plated jewelry?

Gold plated jewelry can be affected by heat, cold and humidity. To protect your jewelry from these elements, it is important to keep them in a bag or box, away from sunlight, and store them in a room without humidity.
