You can use a jewelry box, a pouch, or even a ziplock bag to store your jewelry. It's important to avoid storing your jewelry with other jewelry pieces, especially those made of metal, as they can scratch and damage your gold-plated jewelry.

Avoid Contact with Water and Chemicals

Gold-plated jewelry should never come into contact with water, as it can cause the gold plating to wear off. This means you should avoid wearing your jewelry while swimming, showering, or doing any activity that involves water.

In addition, you should also avoid exposing your jewelry to chemicals such as perfumes, lotions, and hairspray, as they can cause damage to the gold plating. It's best to apply these products before putting on your jewelry to avoid any contact.

Clean Your Jewelry Regularly
