Gold Jewellery: Tips to Maintaining Its Appearance

When it comes to precious metals, gold is considered to be one of the hassle-free options you could consider, as it requires minimal maintenance. However, some people make the mistake of not engaging in any maintenance and this will cause your gold jewellery to steadily deteriorate over time. If you want to ensure that your gold jewellery maintains its shine and stays in good condition, you should employ the following maintenance tips.

Tip 1: Routine cleaning

The first thing to do when it comes to maintaining the lustre of your gold jewellery is to engage in routine cleaning. This is especially important if your gold jewellery includes precious stones, as these could also begin to lose their lustre over time.

The first thing to note about cleaning your jewellery is that the frequency will largely depend on how often the jewellery is exposed to chemicals from makeup, hair products, body sprays and more. If you wear your gold jewellery on a day-to-day basis, then you will have to clean it more often.

Do not get into the habit of storing your gold jewellery if it has been coated with any sort of product, as this will accelerate the tarnishing of the metal. Moreover, you should also consider putting on your jewellery last when getting ready, as this will limit its exposure to chemicals. If you cannot take your jewellery for professional cleaning on a regular basis, you may want to invest in a steam cleaner that will be gentle yet effective in eliminating dirt and chemicals.

Tip 2: Routine inspections

Another important aspect of maintaining the appearance of your gold jewellery is having it checked on a regular basis by professional jewellers. Routine inspections are prudent for jewellery items such as necklaces, bracelets and anklets as they come with an assortment of links, prongs and fasteners that could easily become damaged. If the integrity of these components is compromised and you are not aware of this, you stand the risk of losing the precious stones being held by the prongs of the jewellery or losing your jewellery altogether as the fasteners break off while you are wearing your jewellery.

Routine inspections will ensure that any loose gemstones are secure and any damaged fasteners are fixed or replaced before they lose their ability to close. It should also be noted that the more often you wear your jewellery, the more wear and tear your jewellery is exposed to, which makes it necessary to carry out routine inspections.
