How to care for your Charlie My Charlie jewelry
Our jewelry collection contains pieces that are made of 18 carat gold plated silver and 24 carat gold or whitegold plated glass beads. With proper care and maintenance for your Charlie My Charlie pieces we recommend you to follow our guidance.
Every piece of jewelry from Charlie My Charlie is made of tiny glass beads. A drop on the floor can break the glass beads and damage your jewelry, so we recommend you to put on the jewelry carefully and not near any hard surfaces in case your jewelry by accident slips out of your hands.
Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold plated jewelry. Wear your jewelry after you have sprayed on your favorite perfume so that chemicals on the spray or perfume does not interact with your jewelry’s metal.
Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated earring, bracelet or necklace.
Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume etc may react with metal/plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.
Every after use, clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft moist cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. 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. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft brush. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly.
To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry you have. The box your Charlie My Charlie jewelry came is perfect storage.
Daily wear of your Charlie My Charlie jewelry will eventually take the gold plate from the silver or glass beads and that is normal. We use a high quality of gold plating and with proper care and maintenance your jewelry from Charlie My Charlie will last for a long time.
