Care for your Gold Jewellery

Care for your Gold Jewellery

Family Heirlooms

• Handle your heirloom jewellery very delicately.

• Gently clean your jewellery with a soft cloth or get it cleaned by a reliable jeweller.

• Never store antique jewellery in small containers.

• Segregate costume jewellery from genuine gold jewellery.

• Segregate jewellery according to their karatage.

Storage Solutions

• Make sure your gold comes in a box with a satin or velvet lining.

• Avoid storing jewellery in pouches. This results in scratches and wearing away of the jewellery.

• Ornaments studded with diamonds or other gemstones are more susceptible to scratches and wearing away.

• Do not keep two different gold ornaments in the same box.

• Wrap the smaller jewellery in tissue paper so that it is protected from scratches.

Cleaning Solutions

• Use a soft cleaning cloth, chamois leather or synthetic chamois to clean your jewellery.

• A good cleaning liquid is useful for maintaining the shine of your jewellery.

• Always use soft, non-abrasive material to clean your jewellery.

• Cleaning liquids are recommended for intricate jewellery with delicate links.

• Occasionally, gold ornaments should be cleaned by immersing them in boiling water with a pinch of sodium bicarbonate, for about half a minute. Each piece of jewellery should be dropped individually and wiped immediately once removed.
