Gold Plating: To make gold-plated pieces, an electric current is used to negatively charge the base metal and positively charge a solution containing gold ions. The positive gold ions are attracted to the negative charge of the core metal, slowly forming a layer of gold on top of the core. Basically, gold plating is a minuscule layer of solid gold applied to a brass base. The plating does not compose any measurable proportion of the products total weight. It is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will generally wear off more quickly and expose the brass base product. It does not stand up to heat, water or wear over time.
How to Clean: The number one rule for cleaning gold-plated jewelry is to never scrub it. It is also very important to not expose gold-plated jewelry to water or chemicals. Should your piece become tarnished or dirty, you can clean it with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly.
