We take a long time in choosing quite some time choosing the right gold jewelry piece. After going through so many quality checks, collecting word-to-word references about the jewelry and visiting so many different jewelry stores, a piece of jewelry is selected.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to take care of that gold jewelry piece we chose after working so many hours on choosing the perfect one. It is so unfair to that innocent and delicate piece of jewelry, whether it is your gold earrings, gold Mangalsutra, or gold bracelet; it requires proper and regular caring sessions and an appropriate storing place to maintain its shine.

Appropriate Storage of Gold Jewelry 

If we humans need nice abodes to spend our lives, why store gold jewelry pieces at inappropriate storage places? Gold is too expensive to store incorrectly.

Even before buying your favorite jewelry piece, you must acquire a perfect storage solution for your jewelry piece. 

The best way to store each item is in its own box or space. You face the risk of them coming into close touch if you keep many gold rings or other jewelry items together. If this occurs, it is very likely that your priceless possessions will become scratched or worn down.

The best location to store your jewelry is almost always in its original case if it comes with one. Nevertheless, if any of your jewelry doesn't come with a case, we suggest using a fabric-lined box that's clean and in good shape.

Make sure your gold jewelry is kept dry and out of direct sunshine to preserve its quality. The ideal location to store it is somewhere where it won't get too much heat or dust.

Caring Tips While Wearing Gold Jewelry

Very simple precautions are needed to take when it comes to preventing your gold jewelry from facing any wear and tear. Simple precautions and hacks cannot be helpful for some harsh wear and tear, so it is necessary to keep a few things in mind while wearing a gold jewelry piece.

The first and foremost jewelry rule that is applicable to every type of jewelry is to put on your jewelry at last, i.e., after you get dressed. Putting on aftershave, perfume, hair products, or makeup after wearing the gold jewelry is highly prohibited, as it can cause your jewelry to tarnish away.

We encourage you to remove your jewelry before performing any manual labor or housekeeping in order to keep it safe around the house. When performing routine housework, you don't want to scuff or scratch a ring or bracelet accidentally. Also, what's excellent for you often won't be good for your gold jewelry. It's preferable to remove it.

Common Gold Jewelry Cleaning Mistakes to Avoid

1. Cleaning the jewelry piece with a toothpaste

A toothpaste is self-explanatory. The toothpaste is for our teeth and not our jewelry pieces. No matter how mild toothpaste you own and use, the chemicals and elements used in toothpaste are still harsh for the thin protective coating on the gold jewelry. Toothpaste will make your gold jewelry lose its shine and luster.

2. Soaking the jewelry in lemon juice and vinegar

Lemon juice and vinegar are acidic solutions. These two solutions are undoubtedly best for cleaning copper utensils and other types of equipment, but they are the worst cleaning solutions for jewelry pieces, whether it is gold, silver, pearl, diamond, etc. 

The level of acidity possessed by lemon juice and vinegar will make your jewelry lose its sparkle and color.

3. Using bleach and baking soda

Other household cleaning hacks are bleach and baking soda.

Bleaching works best when used to make the whites whiter. But none of us would ever want to make our jewelry whiter.

Bleach and baking soda are made up of such chemical elements that break down the jewelry metals. Using these two cleaning solutions can leave your jewelry with permanent discoloration and damage.

4. Excessive water contact

9 out of 10 individuals never remove their jewelry pieces before taking a shower. Wearing the jewelry even while taking a shower can be harsh on your jewelry. 

Wearing jewelry while swimming is not advisable too. The chlorine-infused swimming pool water can damage your gold jewelry.

5. Not maintaining a proper balance between underwashing and overwashing

There is a very thin line between these two factors. If an imbalance is created between these two, your jewelry will fade away.

If you are very precautious about your jewelry piece and always hand it over to a jeweler for its cleaning, then you must not get it cleaned often by different jewelers, as the cleaning solutions differ from jeweler to jeweler.

To balance between these two, you must know the quality of your gold jewelry. Without knowing the quality, you will be unable to balance its underwashing and overwashing.

Look After Your Jewelry

Setting all these hacks aside. No hack is better for your gold jewelry other than cleansing it with soapy lukewarm water. 

Jewelry is very time-consuming. And to be honest, owning gold and diamond jewelry is exciting for everyone, but everyone backs off when it comes to its caring session.

You must treat your gold jewelry pieces like your babies, as they are made out of very valuable metals.

Finding the perfect gold jeweler in town or online is very difficult, but we can ease your search. Facet Of Love is the store for all your gold and diamond cravings.
