GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Are you looking for good quality gold jewellery, but do you think real gold is just a little too expensive? Then a gold plated piece of jewellery is the perfect solution! Gold plated jewellery looks the same as the real gold version but is a lot more affordable. Below we explain what gold plated is exactly!
WHAT IS GOLD PLATED?
A gold plated piece of jewellery is a piece of metal jewellery with a layer of another metal on top, in this case, liquid gold. Because the layer of gold plating is very thin, gold plated jewellery is much more affordable than jewellery made of real gold. All our gold plated jewellery has a layer of 14-carat gold micron plating over 925 sterling silver. The base of the jewellery is silver. In our webshop, you will find all our gold plated sunny cords, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Filter for gold plated sterling silver and you will find them all!
HOW DO I KEEP MY GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY BEAUTIFUL?
How long your gold plated jewellery stays beautiful depends on various factors. For example of the thickness of the gold plating or external influences, such as rain and even oxygen. It is important that you take good care of your jewellery and handle it with care. Below we share some tips, so that you keep your jewelry beautiful.
• Take off your gold plated jewellery while showering, swimming. The gold plating is very sensitive to water and chlorine
• Take off your jewellery when spraying perfume or hairspray. Also, take them off if you apply cosmetica and other oils and lotions
• Take off your gold plated jewellery while exercising. Sweat has a negative effect on the gold plating and its colour
• Make sure you store your jewellery neatly and keep them in a closed, dark place, for example in a box or bag. You can also use the beautiful Lisa Huiberts jewellery box you receive when you order a jewellery piece
• Take off your jewellery while sleeping! If you are a wild sleeper, chains can even be dangerous and a big earring does not sleep well…
If you handle your gold plated jewellery with care, you can wear them for a long time. Check out all our gold plated jewellery here and choose a beautiful sunny cord, necklace, bracelet or a set of earrings.
