Caring for your necklace
Keep it dry and try to void contact with lotions and moisturises if possible.
Keep your jewellery in a box if possible, ideally something airtight as this slows down the oxidising process which will darken silver naturally over time.
The necklace and chain are made from 925 sterling silver which means they oxidise just because they are exposed to oxygen. This is normal. It's a good idea to give your silver jewellery some love and polish it with a piece of soft cloth every now and then. Silver jewellery can be cleaned in warm soapy water. Rinse it thoroughly and dry before storing to avoid tarnishing.
All gold elements are plated using 22 carat yellow gold using the process of electroplating (by coating 925 sterling silver with 22kt yellow gold and passing an electrical current through the piece).
Take care when handling gold-plated jewellery to protect the layer of gold from excess wear and scratching.
The gold-plated piece won't get any darker, but the gold might wear off after a while especially if you expose it to water or lotions, or wear when sleeping in it. Always avoid wearing gold-plated jewellery whilst swimming - chlorine can permanently damage or discolour the gold-plated elements.
