How To Care For Your Gold Jewelry

Gold is lasting and durable, but it can get scratched or dented if treated roughly.

Gold's worst enemy is chlorine. Repeated exposure can weaken gold's structure, eventually leading to breakage. Keep your jewelry away from chlorinated cleaning products and out of the swimming pool and jacuzzi.

Protect your gold jewelry by storing it safely or keeping it wrapped in a soft cloth when not being worn.

Clean your gold jewelry with a cleaning solution of sudsy lukewarm water, or take it to a jeweler and have it professionally cleaned.

Dry and polish jewelry with a chamois or soft cloth after cleaning and rinsing.

Keep gold jewelry free from dust, moisture, perspiration and makeup.

Always inspect your gold jewelry for weakness or damage. If any is found, take it to a jeweler for immediate repair. (I will be glad to restore it for you.)


  1. When we had our wedding bands made we told the jeweler "we want colored stones, forget to take them off most of the time, and bash our hands a lot." She smiled, picked up a case of sapphires and said "your bands will be platinum now which color stone do you want?" We selected the beautiful olive ones.
