Gold, being a precious commodity for different cultures and societies has maintained its relatively high cost which can be a challenge for some gold jewelry lovers out there.
Thanks to 24 karat gold electroplating technique which allows us to have the beauty and sparkle of real gold without having to pay too much.
Gold electroplating is the technique of placing a layer of gold onto the surface of another metal like copper, brass and silver using sharp electro-chemical or chemical process.
Gold plated jewelry is now sold almost in every clothing shop you can imagine.
The length of time that gold plated jewelry lasts depends on how often the wearer uses the jewelry and the piece’s exposure to different elements, how it’s taken cared of, your skin’s pH and definitely on how thick the plating is.
The price of gold plated jewelry is usually affected by how thick or how many coats of gold are applied to the jewelry.
It is a fact that a plated surface/material only has a certain lifespan but to maximize your gold plated jewelry, here are some tips on how to take care of it and prolong its life.
One of the simplest ways to take care of your gold plated jewelry is to wear it with utmost care.
Avoid bumping or scratching your jewelry on hard or any rough surfaces, make sure to remove your jewelry first.
Do not let your jewelry come in contact with chemicals and high temperature.
Other substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily.
Same goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.
To clean gold plated jewelry, use a soft cotton cloth and not the usual jewelry cloth which may be rough.
Damp the cotton cloth with warm water, if needed, you may put a drop of mild liquid soap on warm water and wipe your jewelry with that.

When cleaning with soap, do not use soap which contains alcohol.
Cleaning your jewelry with this simple cleaner will help remove dirt or dust on the jewelry’s surface which can accumulate and diminish the gold layer or coating.
To polish the jewelry, use a soft dry cloth/ non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth.
To restore it’s shine, just gently rub your piece with the soft dry cloth like cotton cloth.
Those are the three simple ways to prolong the life of your gold plated jewelry.
Gold plated Nameplate Necklace may last you for months and some even years but no one can really tell an exact time frame when it will last.
It all depends on the factors mentioned above.
Tarnishing will eventually occur in gold plated jewelry and you can replace it easily and inexpensively with another piece.
