My customers are always asking me…
How Should I Clean my Jewelry?
Gold and Sterling silver are both versatile and very easy to keep looking beautiful for years to come. These metal’s worst enemy, however, is chlorine. Repeated exposure can weaken the metals structure, eventually leading to breakage. Try to keep your jewelry away from chlorinated cleaning products, swimming pools and Jacuzzis. To clean, use your jeweler’s recommended solution or lukewarm, soapy water. Rinse with clear water, then dry and polish with a soft chamois cloth. For harder-to-clean “gold-only” pieces, your local jeweler can steam-clean them.
Remember to take your jewelry into your local jewelry store for the occasional Polish, rhodium plating, (for white gold and possibly silver) and to have your jewelry carefully checked over.
