Taking Care of Your Jewelry

At Goldition, we use high-quality materials like 925 sterling silver and brass as base metals for our necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. To enhance their beauty and durability, we plate them with luxurious 14k or 18k gold. To ensure that your jewelry remains in excellent condition for years to come, follow these simple care guidelines:

1. Store your jewelry properly Always store your pieces individually in a soft-lined box or pouch to prevent scratching, rubbing, or tangling. Be especially careful with gemstones, ensuring they don't knock against each other during storage. Remember to keep your chains fastened to avoid tangling.

2. Protect from humidity If you live in a humid environment, store your jewelry with a small packet of desiccant crystals to help reduce tarnishing.

3. Keep in a cool, dark, and dry place Store your gold-plated jewelry in a cool, dark, and dry place. Although the gold plating protects the underlying silver from tarnishing, the plating may wear off over time, especially if the jewelry is exposed to friction or harsh conditions. To minimize this, store your pieces in a soft-lined box or pouch when not in use. Wearing your jewelry often can also help maintain the plating by reducing the risk of scratching or damage that may occur during storage.

4. Avoid exposure to chemicals Your jewelry is particularly vulnerable to damage from chemicals found in perfume, hairspray, makeup, nail polish remover, body oils, suntan lotion, and deodorant. Always remove your jewelry before applying these products or engaging in activities that may expose them to harsh substances.

5. Protect from direct sunlight Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause many gemstones, such as amethyst, rose quartz, chalcedony, and smoky quartz, to fade and lose their color. To prevent this, avoid storing or displaying your jewelry in areas with direct sunlight.

 

By following these simple care instructions, you can ensure that your Goldition jewelry remains beautiful and radiant for years to come. If you have any further questions about caring for your specific pieces, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team for assistance.
