I always receive questions from customers regarding gold plated or gold filled jewelry.
Question usually is:
- Will it turn overtime?
- How can i clean jewelry which is turning?
I never received a question asking "How can I care about jewelry so it will not turn?"
I think it's good to know "The Prevention" before things happen, right?
