Frequently Asked Questions
What does gold plated mean?
Gold plating is the process of coating a thin layer of gold is onto the surface of another metal. These gold bee earrings are made from solid 925 sterling silver and then plated in 24k gold.
Does gold plating tarnish or wear off?
Unfortunately, it does. The drawback of gold plated jewellery is that the gold plating will fade with time. This is because the molecules of the base metal will slowly travel to the top layer, showing signs of wear. However, with good and proper care, the gold plated layer can last for several years. To prolong the gold plated finish and avoid it tarnishing, we suggest that it is kept away from harsh chemicals or abrasive surfaces.
What does 24k gold plated mean?
24 karate before the word plated refers to how much gold content there is in the layer that plates the jewellery. 24k gold plating has 99.9% gold content, meaning its incredibly high quality and pure.
How do I clean my gold plated earrings?
To remove tarnish from your jewellery, we recommend using a soft cloth or polishing cloth that contains an anti-tarnishing agent. Do not use kitchen roll, tissues or paper towels to clean your jewellery, the paper fibres could potentially scratch the gold plate. With the polishing cloth in your hand, use a back and forth motion to rub the jewellery to polish. Do not rub in a circular motion, this will only highlight any scratches in the earring. Polishing is a great way to maintain and brighten the gold plating. For more information please read our jewellery care guide.
