Jewelry DO’S and DON’TS – Part 2

Whether it’s a timeless treasure or a trendy new piece, your gold jewelry deserves to be seen at its best. Here are a few easy to remember DO’S and DON’TS to help it keep its warm glow.


DO KEEP IT CLEAN – Regular cleaning will keep your prized pieces shimmering. Use a mild soap and water, a light touch, and always dry each piece as completely as possible using a soft jewelry cloth.

DO BE GENTLE – A soft metal by nature, gold can be easily scratched or dented. Rings and bracelets are most susceptible. Try to remove these pieces before participating in any activity that causes a lot of wear.

DO BABY IT A BIT – If possible, swaddle each piece in a soft cloth when not wearing. Or look for a jewelry case with small compartments to keep your gold jewelry separated, preventing any scratching.


DON’T FORGET TO INSPECT IT – Normal wear and tear can lead to weaknesses in the most vulnerable parts of your items. Take time to inspect clasps, gemstone settings (prongs), and pins.

DON’T EXPOSE IT TO ITS WORST EMEMY – Avoid all contact with chlorine, as well as household cleaners. These can weaken the gold and lead to a breakage. Remove your pieces before getting in a pool or spa.

DON’T GIVE IT A MAKEOVER – Makeup, perfume, hairspray, and lotions can damage your gold. They don’t need any of these products to look amazing. So put these things on before your jewelry to limit the exposure.

When you give your gold a little extra attention it will glimmer and glow against your skin, making you feel great and look great!
