The LatoD jewels are delicate products created and processed with respect for tradition. We have chosen high-quality 24-karat gold-plating that ranges from 2 to 4 µm, depending on the object, to ensure a longer lasting gloss.
None of the surface treatments are truly permanent, which is why specific care is required in order to allow gold-plating or burnished finishing to last as long as possible. In order to protect jewellery from getting scratched or tarnished, keeping the products in their original packaging or alternatively in a soft, cloth bag is highly recommended. To prevent deterioration and preserve the metal coating from discoloration or deglossing, please remove your jewellery when washing your hands, while swimming, doing sports, or when you use solvents, hair lacquers or perfumes. Do not immerse the products in water nor wear in the shower. Do not expose products to excessive heat. Do not clean products with detergents or chemical products, hot water or ultrasonic cleaning systems.
Not to fear! All gold-plated jewellery can be easily re-plated and returned to its perfect original brightness, just as all oxidized jewellery can be re-oxidized in order to recapture its black, colour finish.
