We are all fans of costume jewelry - trendy, original and usually very affordable. But don't you just hate it when our favorite bracelet or pair of earrings turns into a weird and unappealing color?
No miracle solution here, but we've put together a few tips to keep them looking their best while they're still on trend.
Usually this discoloration is due to the plated gold being oxidized by the air, as well as sweat and oil during wearing.
Here are some tips to minimize the oxidization on your costume jewelry:
1) Keep them dry and clean. Do make sure you remove your jewelry when you wash your hands, apply lotion or spray on perfume.
2) To prevent body oil and lotion build up on your jewellery, clean and polish and remove all oils from your jewellery with a soft cloth when undressing to keep it looking beautiful.
2) Jewelry tarnishes much faster if it’s left out in the open and exposed to oxygen. To avoid this, you can either store it in an air tight ziploc bag, or a jewelry box.
