- For our fully gold-plated jewellery, we always tell our customers to treat these items as accessories rather than pieces that are worn every day or kept on your body in the way you would with solid gold or purely silver jewellery. If you take care of your gold-plated jewellery bearing in mind they are not solid gold pieces, they should last a long time.
To clean and store your fully plated jewellery please view our Jewellery Care page.
- Gold-plated Rings: Although we use 5 microns for our rings, it’s always important to remember that they are not made in solid gold and because rings are constantly being rubbed against other surfaces, the gold plating will fade quicker than on other pieces of jewellery. If you take this approach and treat your plated jewellery with care, especially when doing physical activities, remembering to take your rings off etc., your plated rings should last longer.
