Will the gold-plating wear off? Eventually, yeah — that’s just the nature of it.
And although the materials we use help prolong the inevitable, you can give it an extended life by following the care instructions that are listed above.
With proper care and storage the gold-plating can easily last for years, but in high-use cases, it may begin to wear off after 6 months.
When it does, the piece is still ok to wear, you will simply be able to see the metal base underneath. Because this is due to wear and tear, it won’t be eligible for return or exchange. You can always have your piece re-plated at your local jewellery store.
