GOLD, ROSE GOLD & RHODIUM PLATED JEWELLERY INFO AND CARE RECOMMENDATIONS

Plated jewellery pieces are made with a base metal and are coated with a thin layer finish to give colour and shine - hence the term plating/plated.

Although the plating on jewellery is not wear-proof, it can be a cost effective alternative to solid or gold-filled products - mostly when the base metal is Silver or Gold because plating adheres better to those metals as opposed to others.  For example, Rhodium plating on Silver is a great way to add lustre and shine plus helps to protect the tarnish of the underlying Silver.  Solid Gold jewellery is also often asked to be plated to improve the overall finish or change the colour!

The question "How long will the plated finish last for?", is impossible to give an answer to with any indication as to the amount of time that it will last. The plating will diminish, fade and wear off, exposing the base metal underneath.
Fortunately, you can get most pieces re-plated by your local jeweller, which is typically a fast and inexpensive process.

NOTE: Gold & Rose Gold Plated pieces look pretty and give you 'the look' at a fraction of real gold prices, but because the Plating will fade and wear off we recommend these to be created more as Keepsake items for the occasional wear only eg., out to a special dinner.
The Rhodium Plated Silver pieces are more recommended instead for regular wear.
Therefore, our range of Plated designs have their Gold or Rose Gold Plating applied for free. We don't charge any extra and they are the same price as the Silver versions.  

The time in which the plating will wear off depends on many factors.
 
Plated jewellery may wear away quite quickly for some or last much longer for other people due to the acidity or ph balance of the skin. Other factors that affect the plating on jewellery are body sweat, contact with water, using chemicals, lotions, perfumes and doing cleaning duties whilst wearing them. 
How the jewellery is cleaned and how much exposure each piece has to the world also affects the longevity of the plating. For example, the plating on a ring will typically wear away much faster than that of a pendant, because rings will constantly rub against fingers and anything you handle during the course of a day.
 
To take care of your jewellery and help increase the longevity of the plating;

  • Do not bathe, shower, swim or wash your hands with your jewellery on
  • Take your jewellery off before physical activities or anytime your body is sweating
  • Do not expose your jewellery to cleaning products, chemicals, lotions, perfumes, cosmetics etc
  • Clean your jewellery gently with nothing more than warm water, being careful not to rub or buff
  • Keep your plated pieces stored separately in a soft container where there is nothing to rub against it
