Jewelry Care / FAQ

What is Gold Plated Jewelry? 

Gold Plated jewelry is created by covering a base metal like brass or copper in a thin layer of gold. This is less expensive and a great alternative to solid gold jewelry. The appearance can look very similar to sold gold jewelry. 

How Long Does Gold Plated Jewelry Last?

This depends on how you take care of them - if you take good care it can last for many years. Avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals and storing them in a cool dry place. 

Is Gold Plated Jewelry Fake?

No, Gold Plated Jewelry is not fake because it is coated in a thin layer of REAL gold. 

Does Gold Plated Jewelry Tarnish / Wear Off?

Over time, it can fade and tarnish or lose its shine/brightness no matter how good quality the pieces might be BUT  it will take longer than if the piece is made of pure brass. This happens because the base metal is layered and with use, it can fade. With PROPER care pieces can last years.
