Plated Jewelry Care
Miranda Frye plated jewelry is either 18k yellow gold or genuine rhodium. To ensure the life of plated jewelry, do not expose it to water. Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing, swimming and avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, alcohols and hair products.
We recommend cleaning your plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your brass jewelry in the box or pouch that we provide.
Gold Filled & Sterling Silver Care
Gold filled products are a great alternative to the much more expensive solid karat gold. Gold filled is high in quality and with proper care and storage, you will have affordable jewelry that lasts. It is the economical way to enjoy the luster of gold without the big price tag.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal such as brass. It is not to be confused with gold plating as gold filled has almost 100% more gold than plated items. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant if taken care of properly. Most people who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.
Tips to make it last
•Humidity is the enemy; keep it dry! Store your goodies individually in the air-tight plastic baggie or the box included with your jewelry.
•Avoid rough wear to slow down the natural process of “wear and tear”.
•Put on your jewelry last. Perfume, hairspray, hand sanitizers & other types of lotion contain harsh chemicals and alcohol that can tarnish your jewelry over time.
•For extra care, gently wipe each piece of jewelry clean of any products and skin oils with a soft dry towel.
•Never use abrasive products to clean your jewelry. They can damage irreparably.
