Costume jewellery will change colour over time with wear and tear and various other aspects. To make the color last longer we suggest you keep your byCARA pieces away from
- dishwashing soap
- hair products
- jewellery cleaners
- other harsh chemicals
- remove while exercising to avoid contact with sweat
Where stated, gold plated is a coat of gold over a lesser metal such as brass. It is still subject to color loss. A base metal such as steel or brass is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution, with a lump of solid gold. When an electric current is applied, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the metal. Since the plating is quite thin, the plate (and hence the color) can wear off but not as quickly as non-gold plated.
