How To Use them
Use the most extravagant pieces for a social gathering, with friends, a party, at night; If you wear a generous size choker, take care not to wear large or long earrings and vice versa, no matter how old you are, take care not to show exaggeration, promote good taste.
The disadvantage of these pieces is the maintenance required: neither a bath of gold nor a silver are eternal and more so if they are pieces that you use daily. The fashion jewelry tends to lose their shine over a period time if worn regularly. You will probably have to get them redone to get back the original quality.
Take care of this type of pieces, cleaning the grease or fingerprints that are left at the end of the day with a soft cotton or flannel, without placing any chemicals so that the precious metal coating lasts longer.
When there is no more to do and the coating has almost completely worn away, you should take it to your jeweler or to the supplier that you bought it from to cover it again. It is important that you know that the price of a silver bath or a gold bath is it will never be as if it were a piece made entirely of gold or silver, be careful with what you pay.
