Gold- or silver-plated: Not real gold or silver, is only of gold or silver color. The coloring on gold-plated or silver-plated jewelry tends to wear off more easily and is subject to tarnishing and discoloration if it comes into contact with any liquids or is exposed in humid climates.
To care for your jewelry, remove when exposed to water, chemicals, such as pool and sea water, hair spray, perfume, and lotions. Place in a dry storage area. Store in a sealable bag to prevent discoloration and tarnishing.
