Double Goldplated Jewelry

Most of my jewelry pieces are 18 karat, double goldplated. This is a very strong and durable goldplating. You can have the jewelry for years and you will not see any changes in the the gold. You shoud be able to take a shower without taking of the jewelry if you want, or have a swim in the ocean.

However, we have a very different amount of acids in our skin. Some people will experience that the goldplatings vanishes faster because of the component of acids in their skin, but this is very rare. 

Care:

Clean the jewelry from time to time with a clean cotton piece that you are not afraid to ruin. You will be surprised by how much dirt gathers on the jewelry. This will make it look darker. Clean it of and your jewelry piece will look new and shiny again. 

Store in a dry box away from sunlight. 

 

Sterling Silver 925

Care:

If you wear silver jewelry everyday it will be cleand by itself. If you put it away in a box it can get tarnished. Cleaning advice follows below.

If silver jewelry gets tarnished, soak it in asolution of 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 tbsp.of baking soda. You should soak the item in the solution for between two to three hours. Don't be surprised if the solution fizzes! The clean it with a cotton pieces. 

 

Goldplated Silver - Single bath

My goldplated silver jewelry pieces have a single bath of gold on a sterling silver base. The goldlayer is much thinner than the double goldplated jewelry. It is still 100 % clean materials and alergic-free, but the gold will loose its colour much faster than the double goldplating. In the end you will have a sterling silver necklace when the goldplating is gone. 

 

General Advice

Store your jewerly in dark, dry places. Try keeping sunlight exposure to a minimum and brush up the gold with a soft cloth every now and then.
