How to store your plated jewellery?

November 25, 2014

Each piece of Standout Boutique jewellery is hand-crafted and requires delicate handling. Avoid direct contact with chemical/ grease and very high temperature. Gently wipe with a soft jewellery cloth and store in a jewellery box or velvet bag.

Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold or silver plated jewellery. Wear your jewellery after you have sprayed on your favorite perfume so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewellery’s metal.

Do not put away gold plating and silver plating together. The different metals will cause each other to tarnish, fade and/or turn colors.

Don’t use traditional jewellery cleaners on your plated jewellery, or any other chemical-filled solution, not even toothpaste. Instead, rely on a soft cotton cloth and warm water, but only if you must. If you have to, you can use a miniscule amount of liquid soap, but you should only do this when needed. You should limit its exposure to water as well.

Plated metals can retain their shine for longer when kept in a sealed plastic bag when not in use.
