HOW TO CLEAN GOLD-PLATED JEWELLERY

Maintain the shine by polishing jewellery with a soft polishing cloth. Wash gently in lukewarm, soapy water, patting jewellery gently with a soft cloth to dry. The use of silver dips, polishing liquids, ultrasonic cleaning and abrasive chemicals should be avoided. Limit contact with make-up, creams, perfumes and lotions, and remove jewellery prior to swimming, bathing and exercising. Handle with care and store items of jewellery separately to avoid scratches.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Learn more about our beautiful new precious metal below.

What is gold-plated jewellery?

PANDORA Shine jewellery is made from 18ct gold-plated sterling silver. It is different to our solid 14ct gold but can be styled together with all of PANDORA metals: 14ct gold, sterling silver and PANDORA Rose.
 

What's the difference between gold-plated and gold-filled?

Gold plating and gold-filled jewellery are produced through two different processes. Gold-plated jewellery is created through electroplating, in which the layer of gold is plated on top of the sterling silver base utilising an electric current. Gold-filled jewellery has a layer of solid gold mechanically bonded to the sterling silver base.

Is gold-plated real gold?

Yes – gold plating means that a layer of genuine gold has been coated on top of a different metal. PANDORA uses 18ct gold plated on top of a base of sterling silver. Many other companies uses gold plating on a brass base resulting in a product that may be lower in price but also inferior in quality. 

Does gold-plated jewellery fade?

While the exact life expectancy of gold plating depends on how the jewellery is treated,
the 18ct gold plating on PANDORA Shine jewellery will last for many years provided the care instructions are followed.


How long does gold-plated jewellery last?

With proper care and maintenance, the plating will last a long time. However, it is impossible to put an exact time on this, as it depends on how the jewellery is worn and the care exhibited. Typically, jewellery pieces such as rings and charms are subjected to more wear and tear than earrings and necklaces, so the plating may naturally wear off faster on these items.

How to clean gold-plated jewellery?

Maintain the shine by polishing jewellery with a soft polishing cloth. Wash gently in lukewarm, soapy water, patting jewellery gently with a soft cloth to dry. The use of silver dips, polishing liquids, ultrasonic cleaning and abrasive chemicals should be avoided. Limit contact with make-up, creams, perfumes and lotions, and remove jewellery prior to swimming, bathing and exercising. Handle with care and store items of jewellery separately to avoid scratches.

Does gold-plated jewellery tarnish?

Gold in itself is tarnish-resistant, so it will normally not tarnish unless the plated layer has been worn off and the metal beneath is exposed.  Over time, you will experience a slight dulling of the golden hue on the PANDORA Shine jewellery pieces. This is the result of a natural process, as the metals in the gold alloy react with the compounds in the air.


Can you wear gold-plated jewellery in the shower?

Remove your PANDORA Shine jewellery prior to swimming and bathing.
