Jewelry Care

Caring for Plated & Gold Filled Jewelry

 

  • Avoid contact with perfumes, colognes and lotions or other chemicals – Chemicals can react with plating and discolor or fade jewelry.
  • Body chemistry and moisture can also effect a plated piece – a high skin PH balance will greatly speed up wear on a plated item.
  • Never be worn during activities that involve water such as showering or pool/beach activities  – as chlorine and salt water will effect plating.
  • Store your jewelry in a dry area
  • Friction or contact with a hard surface  can produce scratches or wear to the piece.
  • Always separate from other jewelry  prevent scratching
  • Remove before showering or cleaning.
  • Polish gently using yellow gold specific polishing cloth.
  • If necessary, use warm water with a mild, fragrance-free soap to clean plated items. Gently pat dry with a clean cotton or microfiber cloth. Most jewelry cleaners contain chemical elements that will slowly wear and fade plating over time.
  • Storing  All Mishina jewelry comes with a ziplock bag or velvet /cotton bag. Use these items to store your jewelry when not being worn.

 

Following these steps will help ensure the longevity of your jewelry!
