How to take care of my personalized necklace?
Your necklace is a delicate being. Treat it as such.
Gold-plated jewelry can tarnish and flake over time, so it requires daily attention.
Avoid wearing them when doing the dishes or other household chores, remove them before taking your shower and have the reflex to put them back in their original packaging.
Saline or chlorinated water can also damage your jewelry, so bathing is not recommended.
The fine plating of golden jewelry on contact with skin and sweat can deteriorate.
To keep your gold or gold plated jewelry in good condition, clean it regularly.
Do not use :
- Toothbrushes with hard bristles
- Abrasive sponges
- Very acidic products (or otherwise with a lot of water)
- Powdered products, even baking soda, if it is not dissolved
- Products for silverware and other chemicals.
We recommend avoiding overly intensive cleaning, which could damage the plating.
