How To Clean Gold Jewellery Overview:

How To Care For Gold Jewellery

Caring for gold is as simple as cleaning your jewellery every few weeks. This helps to keep them looking shiny and free from grime. Some simple household products you can find lying around at home will do the trick. While we do have a range of jewellery care products, following the steps below will suffice. Storing your gold jewellery in a cool, dry and safe place will also prevent tarnish.

The easiest way to maintain the cleanness of your gold jewellery is to remove your items before swimming and showering. Chlorine from pools and not rinsing the soap off of your gold jewellery from the shower can discolour it.

How To Clean Gold At Home

Dirt can make your jewellery look dull so here a few tips to make it shine again. Cleaning your gold jewellery easily is basically the same as cleaning diamond jewellery. First, you'll need to fill a bowl of warm water and mix in some mild dish soap. Drop your gold jewellery in there and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Grab a soft toothbrush and scrub your gold jewellery until you’re happy with the appearance. Gold jewellery scratches easily so you should never use a scouring pad or a stiff brush.

The last step is to rinse off the soapy water with clean water and dry it using a lint-free cloth. Alternatively, you can purchase a cleaning solution specifically created for gold to provide a safe and effective way to keep your gold in tip-top shape.
