We always advise keeping your jewellery away from perfumes, lotions and potions. We also recommend removing before swimming, bathing or showering. All our gold plated items are made from a brass base metal and dipped into a luxurious 14k gold bath meaning our jewellery is hypoallergenic for your convenience. The gold plating is designed to last a long time and to keep that healthy gloss, we advise removing the jewellery before any events involving water. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions or concerns.
