JeWells by J uses Semi Precious stones, Gold-plated and Silver-plated jewelry. Gold-plated jewelry is made by covering a base metal, usually silver, with a very thin layer of gold. Since the gold layer is so thin and reactive with silver, it will eventually wear away despite your best attempts to preserve it. This wearing away process can take as little as a year depending on whether a barrier was created to separate the silver and gold layers.
Usually, a copper barrier will be used to slow down the reactive process. With the copper barrier, the gold plating will still wear away, but it will take much longer than a year for it to do so. Gold plating is usually used as party or costume jewelry. However, if you are unable to afford gold or gold- filled jewelry, there are several steps you can take to preserve your gold-plated jewelry:
Make sure you put your jewelry on AFTER all sprays/perfumes.
If you are wearing a ring/bracelet make sure you take them off to wash your hands and put on lotion (make sure it is fully absorbed before putting jewelry back on).
Clean your jewelry with warm, soapy water. Never use jewelry cleaners on plated jewelry – it will tarnish faster.
All prices are based on the time spent making an item as well as the cost of the materials.
