Jewellery Aftercare

Plated jewellery is very trendy in the hip hop world. It is the process where specific silver is coated with other comparably valuable metals. For example: If a ring has a cover of the gold layer, it is a gold plated ring. Gold plated jewellery is always very sensitive so that we need to be careful while we wear it, moreover, we suggest you clean it properly after every use.

How to clean gold plated jewellery?

We already notified you that Gold plated jewellery is very penetrating, so we should consider something with our gold-plated jewellery. Generally, we suggest using ultrasonic jewellery cleaner to clean all kinds of precious metals, whether it is gold or diamond but you must try a natural jewellery cleaning solution before applying ultrasonic cleaning technology or a steam cleaning system and we hope it is enough to clean gold plate jewellery. You can try the following procedure:

  1. Natural cleaning solution
  2. Soft towel
  3. Water,
  4. Bowl 

Plated gold on the silver or other metals is very soft, so it is easily scratched. That’s why we don’t even suggest brushes.

Step 1: Firstly, try to clean it with a soft towel. Wipe your jewellery softly using a soft towel or cotton cloth. If your jewellery is only surfaced by dirt and dust, it is enough in this case.

Step 2: Take a bowl and fill it with warm (not so much hot) water. Mix the water with a few drops of cleaning solution (we suggest using a natural solution).

Step 3: Put your gold-plated jewellery in the mixture and leave it in here for next 15 minutes. Whenever you take the piece of jewellery from the combination, use the soft towel and gently scrub in tight places. Rub it properly and remove 100% water from it.

I think you will recover your jewellery as new by using this procedure but if your piece is heavily tarnished, we suggest you take it to a professional service or use a professional jewellery cleaner machine at home. Don’t try just any procedure, It will damage your gold plate jewellery.
