With gold plated jewelry, sterling silver jewelry or even gold-filled jewelry, we strongly recommend removing your jewelry before engaging in any activities that can lead to contact with moisture or friction (ie: washing your hands, sleeping and showering) to maintain luster and prolong life.
Gently rub your jewelry with a soft jewelry cloth to restore its shine. After every use, clean your jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Plated pieces can be prone to oxidation, so we recommend removing before you swim, shower, or apply lotion, makeup, or perfume. To minimize scratches, store your piece in your Artful Values pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box.
