5 Helpful Tips on How to Keep Gold Plated Jewelry from Tarnishing

gold rings

Keeping your gold plated jewelry from tarnishing is important. Even when you buy from quality and reputable companies like Solo Mio Milan that have a special coating method, you have to take steps to make sure your jewelry continues to look its best.

  1. Use Toothpaste

Gently scrubbing your jewelry with toothpaste will allow you to get into the grooves of the jewelry and clean away any grime. After scrubbing, rinse off the toothpaste for a clean look. Allow your gold-plated jewelry to air dry before wearing it or storing it in a jewelry box.

  1. Wash with Dishwashing Detergent

Dishwashing detergent, when mixed with warm water is a great way to refresh your gold-plated jewelry. Soak the jewelry in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing detergent and then all it to dry in the open air.

  1. Invest in No-Tarnish Strips

No-tarnish strips are great for when you need to store your jewelry for a long period of time and want to keep it from tarnishing. They work really well as long as you change them every couple of months to keep them fresh.

  1. Acid-Free Paper

This paper is great for use in your jewelry box with your gold-plated jewelry as it won’t have the same damaging effects on your jewelry as regular paper will. Make sure you use acid-free paper or cardstock in your jewelry box anytime you leave notes or bits of paper in there with your jewelry. It’s also great for making earring cards and will keep your gold plated earrings from tarnishing.

  1. Consider Chalk

If you can’t get your hands on no-tarnish strips, then you can replace them in your jewelry box with little broken pieces of chalk. Chalk is very absorbent and will actually absorb the particles in the air that will cause your gold plated jewelry to tarnish. Make sure you change them every few months for the best results.

With careful planning, you can make sure that your gold-plated jewelry always looks amazing and is free of tarnish.
