How to Care for Your Gold Jewelry at Home | A Few Tips

Taking care of your fine jewelry pieces yourself is easier than you probably think. The first thing you should do is make sure you take your gold jewelry off before you take a shower or bath, clean the house, or go swimming. This helps you avoid losing your jewelry, for one thing...plenty of people have lost their engagement rings down a sink drain, for example, and that's the last thing you want! You also don't want to lose your favorite gold bracelet in the ocean while you're swimming, nor do you want to lose your statement ring when you're scrubbing your bathroom or kitchen. Taking your jewelry off before swimming or showering helps prevent imperfections in your jewelry, too.

​Before you store your jewelry, you should make sure it's nice and clean. You should also make sure it's dry....dry it with a soft cloth to avoid scratching or otherwise damaging it.

Are you wondering how to clean your gold jewelry? Well, all you really need is a mix of warm water and a little bit of gentle soap. You can soak your gold jewelry for a while to loosen up dirt and grime. You can also use a soft toothbrush to carefully clean it. Make sure you thoroughly rinse off all of the soap when you're finished, of course. While you're cleaning your jewelry, take a few minutes to carefully inspect it...then, you can determine if any repairs are needed.
