18k Gold-Plated (over Stainless Steel)Updated a year ago

Gold-plated jewelry is jewelry that has a layer of gold applied to the surface of a base metal. It is an alternative way to achieve a gold look with much more options and without hesitation to wear them on a daily basis because of the competitive price point.

To store 18K gold-plated jewelry, it is important to take a few precautions to ensure that the gold plating lasts as long as possible. Here are a few tips on how to store 18K gold-plated jewelry:

How to store

  • Keep it in a dry place: Moisture can cause gold plating to tarnish or even peel off. Avoid storing gold-plated jewelry in damp areas such as bathrooms.
  • Store it separately: Gold-plated jewelry can be scratched or damaged when stored with other jewelry pieces. To prevent this, store each piece separately in a soft cloth pouch or jewelry box. Here is a link for the Babeina jewelry box.
  • Avoid exposure to chemicals: Chemicals such as perfumes, lotions, and cleaning products can damage the gold plating. It is best to put on gold-plated jewelry after applying these products.

How to clean

  • Clean it regularly: Clean your gold-plated jewelry regularly with a soft cloth or a jewelry cleaner specifically made for gold plating.
