used as party or costume jewelry. However, if you are unable to afford
gold or gold-filled jewelry, there are several steps you can take to
preserve your gold-plated jewelry.

1. please be sure to keep silver plated or gold plated items from water,
soaps, and perfumes. Take off your jewelry before washing or have a
bathe. Please Do not bring the gold plated jewelry into shower or
washing it.

2. Keep gold-plated jewelry away from hard surfaces. Bumps and scratches
will cause the gold layer to wear away.

3. Store your gold-plated jewelry in a velvet lined jewelry box, or wrap
it in a soft material that will prevent scratches.

4. The most common damage to jewelry plating is tarnish or lost luster.
Lightly wipe your gold-plated jewelry with a damp cotton cloth. This
will help to eliminate any dirt or dust from accumulating on the surface
and wearing away the gold layer.

5. Use a non-abrasive jewelry polishing cloth and gently rub the
gold-plated jewelry to restore shine.

6. Take the gold-plated jewelry to a local jeweler where they can
replace the gold layer. This may be necessary if the gold-plating has
already started to wear off. Check with your local jeweler to see what
they charge for this service.
