How to Clean Your Gold Plated Jewelry

Oct 30, 2023

If your gold-plated jewelry starts losing its lust and shine, it is probably because you have a buildup of soap, lotions, or other products. We recommend rinsing your stainless steel jewelry after exposure to chlorine and saltwater, but it will need regular maintenance to not start looking dull. Cleaning it is a breeze, so here's what you gotta do:

  1. Get a bowl of warm water: Fill a bowl with some lukewarm water. Not too hot, not too cold. 

  2. Add a mild soap: Grab a gentle, mild soap (not the kind that'll strip the gold plating off!) and put a few drops into the water. Give it a little stir to create some soap foam.

  3. Dip and swirl: Take your gold-plated stainless steel jewelry and dip it into the soapy water. Swirl it around gently, giving it a nice little bath. Let the soap work its magic on any dirt or grime.

  4. Soft brush time: If your jewelry needs a little extra cleaning power, you can use a soft toothbrush or a baby toothbrush (don't go stealing your baby cousin's toothbrush, though!). Gently brush the jewelry, paying attention to any nooks and crannies where dirt might be hiding.

  5. Rinse and dry: Hold your jewelry under some running water to wash away the soap. Make sure to get rid of all the suds, you don't want any residue left behind. After rinsing, pat it dry with a soft, clean cloth. Give it a little love, don't scrub it like you're washing a dirty pan. 

 

Avoid harsh stuff: Remember, no harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, alright? Stay away from strong cleaners, rough cloths, or scrubbing pads (they can scratch or damage the gold plating). Store it with care: keep it in a jewelry box or your Dinot curated pouch you receive with your order to protect it from scratching or tangling with other pieces. Don't just toss it in a drawer with your socks.

And there you have it—easy-peasy lemon squeezy. With a little TLC and regular cleaning, your gold-plated stainless steel jewelry will stay shiny and clean. 

Psst. Don't do this with freshwater pearls. Soak a cloth or Q-tip and clean the area around the stone. 

A few words from our customers with sensitive skin

What She Said

ZERO NICKEL!

Dinot Curated's huggies are the only earrings I can wear all day, and sleep in,without waking up the next day with itchy, red ears. And I don't want to take them off - they're stunning!

Jennie J. US

Seriously impressed

I have sensitive skin and react to nickel, not only in my ears, but all over my chest when wearing necklaces. I am so happy with all my products from dinot - I never take off my daisy huggies and hailey studs, and I've been wearing my paperclip necklace 24/7 without a single reaction! And also, the gold has not tarnished one bit!

Anna I. US

Over expectation!

Wow, I paid less than $50 for my huggies and got the same quality as solid gold. No reaction, no itchiness, my skin does not turn green AND god damn they keep the color!

Mira. US

Love it so much

I just found out that the redness I have had on my chest for years was not a constant sunburn: it was an allergic reaction to my old necklaces!!

Love my Chloe curb chain and my new chest complexion ;)
