It is no exaggeration that gold is a timeless jewelry metal that will never go out of style. Whether gold is your cup of tea or not, you should keep in mind the following tips to ensure that your jewelry pieces can last a lifetime.
Gold is a soft metal. That’s why it is susceptible to dings, scratches, and dents. Being mindful of your gold jewelry while you wear them is a good start. And don’t forget to remove gold pieces while playing any high-contact sports.
Chlorine is a big no-no. With repeated exposure, chlorine will weaken your gold jewelry’s structure and eventually lead to serious damage. Remember to take your jewelry off before getting into a pool or spa.
Cover or remove while cleaning. Household cleaners with acids or abrasives will damage your jewelry. Be sure to use rubber gloves while cleaning (to protect your jewelry as well as your skin) or remove your jewelry altogether.
Put on your gold jewelry last when getting ready. Cologne, hairspray, and lotions can damage your gold. Be sure to put these things on before your jewelry to limit the exposure.
Take jewelry off before bathing. Wearing jewelry while bathing can lead to a buildup of soap which will cause a film on your jewelry.
To keep your jewelry shiny and bright, you should clean your jewelry regularly with a mixture of 10-parts warm water and 2-parts dish soap. A few exclusive tips for you:
Soak it all in: you should soak your gold jewelry pieces for 3 hours and then scrub them gently with a very soft brush. Rinse under clean water and blot dry with a cloth.
Polishing cloth is a must: for extra shine, use a jewelry polishing cloth after this! Try to avoid paper towels or tissues as these can scratch your jewelry.
Now you know how to wear and clean gold jewelry in the right way to keep it last a lifetime. Shall we move on to the storing part?
Use a jewelry box. A clean, dry, fabric-lined jewelry box is the best option.
Wrap each piece in a soft cloth. If you don’t have a jewelry box, it’s ok. Just save those free phone screen clothes and use the extras to wrap each piece of your jewelry individually.
Store pieces separately. This prevents jewelry from tangling or scratching each other.
