What is plated jewellery?
The Sportsgirl plated jewellery collection features brass pieces that are expertly coated in either gold or silver plating. Each beautiful piece in our necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring collections is crafted from solid brass in styles that you're sure to adore, then finished with a fine layer of gold or silver plating to mimic the look and feel of solid gold or silver jewellery.
Our gold-plated pieces have a beautifully rich and warm lustre, while our silver-plated items offer a sleek, cool shine. Both types are easily cleaned and maintained using a simple jewellery polishing cloth.
How do you style silver and gold plated jewellery?
Gold plated jewellery offers that effortless sophistication, while silver plated jewellery brings the same dash of elegance. It's easy to pair gold and silver plated necklaces, rings, huggie hoop earrings, chain bracelets and other pieces with any Sportsgirl clothing, from casual denim shorts and basic t-shirts to midi and maxi dresses, skirts and tops.
Whether you're glamming it up for a big night out or just staying in for a Netflix night with your besties, our plated jewellery provides wearable comfort with just a dash of glamour.
Style Tip: If you're wearing metal-framed sunglasses, match your plated jewellery to the colour of your sunnies. That means pairing rose gold plated items with rose gold sunglasses and yellow gold plated jewellery with sunglasses that have yellow gold frames.
Does plated jewellery tarnish?
Some tarnishing is possible with natural wear and tear due to the nature of the metals used in the design of plated jewellery. You can reduce the risk of tarnishing by avoiding contact with:
- Skin creams and lotions
- Hand sanitiser
Can you wear plated jewellery in the shower?
While your Sportsgirl gold plated and silver plated jewellery will go along with you to any casual or formal occasion, they shouldn't join you in the shower, swimming pools or the ocean.
Taking care of your silver or gold plated jewellery means not immersing them in water, whether that's in the shower, while swimming, washing your hands or doing the dishes. It's also best to prevent your plated pieces from coming into contact with chemicals such as those listed above. Both water and chemicals can slowly reduce the natural lustre of the silver and gold plating, wearing it away over time.
Care Tip: Placing a small dish near the kitchen and bathroom sinks is a reminder to remove your gold rings before washing your hands or the dishes. Taking off your necklace, earrings or gold bracelets—even your sterling silver and real gold jewellery—before showering is a good habit, too.
How do you clean plated jewellery?
A soft jewellery polishing cloth will restore the sparkle and shine to gold plated and silver plated jewellery, also removing any tarnish that may occur. By avoiding contact with substances that could wear away the plating and cleaning your jewellery when needed, your gold plated necklace, choker necklace, ear cuffs, stud earrings, curb chain necklace and other beloved pieces will maintain their lustre for a long time.
