We strongly recommend removing your jewelry before engaging in any activities that can lead to contact with moisture or friction (ie: washing your hands, sleeping and showering) to maintain luster and prolong life.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR TREASURES
Every material that is not made with solid gold, chains will somehow lode with time. We want every treasures to last forever. but in reality it is only for solid Gold.
Here in Youtaas we care so much about quality and it is one of our most important key values. The materials we use in our treasures are at the highest qualities available in the market. We have a very durable stainless steel and gold plated jewelries that is good against tarnish and fading.
Our ambassadors and customers can wear our jewelry for a long period of time before any significant changes starts to show (different base metals vary).
Youtaas can however not guarantee any time limit for how long an item will last as it is up to the owner on how it is being taken care of from time to time.
Gold plated in general simply means there is a thin layer of real gold on top of whatever base material is used in theory, its similar to costume jewelry, however the length on Gold plated jewelry is much longer than costume jewelry you buy from most retail stores.
The rate at which things tarnish varies depending on the amount of exposure to hot weather, water and your body chemistry, how acidic it is and how much you sweat or etc.
FINALLY? your jewelry will last longer it kept away from water, humid weather conditions and by not laying it in direct sunlight for long hours.
