Tips for Proper caring of Gold Ornaments

Gold is a soft metal. Contact with hard surfaces can scratch it and reduce it’s luster.

Store gold jewellery, wrapped in a soft cloth, and ensure it does not get tangled.

Keep your gold away from dust, make-up, perspiration and moisture. Wash hands after applying make-up, before you wear gold jewellery.

If you bathe without removing your gold jewellery, soap and water may form a thin film on it, making it look dull and drab.
Remove gold jewellery before you swim. The chlorine in the water can harm gold jewellery.
Cleaning solution, especially recommended for cleaning jewellery, is the best way to keep your jewellery clean.

Gold jewellery can also be rinsed in a mild detergent diluted in warm water. After cleaning, it should be dried and polished with a soft cloth.

A soft bristled brush can also be used to clean intricately crafted jewellery pieces.

Periodically look for loose clasps or links and get a reputed jeweller to set things right, before you lose the piece.

Store gold jewellery in small, individual pouches or boxes. If you are storing more than one piece together, make sure each piece is individually wrapped in tissue paper.

Get your jewellery professionally cleaned once a year
