Gold Filled Items: Our gold filled pieces are the most durable because they are waterproof and sweatproof. Although many gold filled pieces can last you a lifetime, we do recommend removing them when applying lotions, perfumes, or using any sort of harsh chemicals. To extend the longevity of your gold filled pieces, store them in zippered plastic pouch you received your items in, and gently wipe with a microfiber or soft cloth every so often. If any items begin to look dull after lengthened wear, use mild soapy water and a soft toothbrush to bring them back their shine.
Gold Plated items: Although our gold plated pieces have an anti tarnishing varnish applied, gold plated items tarnish over time when exposed to your body oils and other natural elements. We recommend taking them off if you are planning to get wet or before applying lotions, perfumes, or any use of harsh chemicals. If you do get your gold plated items wet, dry them as soon as possible. Store your pieces in the plastic zipper pouch you received them in.
To protect the stretch of any of our stretchy pieces, simply roll the bracelet or ring onto your wrist or finger. We do pre stretch all of our cord, so it is built to withstand the stretch, but this is an extra precaution to prevent any extra wear to your stretchy pieces.
