Do not sleep with gold plated jewelry as skin oils and linens can cause damage. Store separately or with other gold jewelry. Clean using a damp cloth or simple sudsy water. Gold plated jewelry may eventually tarnish. Wipe leather clean with a soft, damp cloth. A leather protector spray is recommended to help prevent staining, cracking and drying. Never use oil based cleaners as it will cause staining on the leather. If the leather becomes stained, take it to a professional cleaner. Store leather jewelry away from metal jewelry and take care to keep it clear of dust. Use any perfumes or oils before you put on your piece to keep it from getting stained.
