Some tips for long-term care and beauty of your gold jewellery: 1. We recommend that you store your gold jewellery, when not wearing it, in a jewellery box and by doing so prevent it from scraping or scratching. 2. Soap leaves residue on the surface, which makes the gold lose its shine, therefore remove jewellery when washing or showering. Similarly jewellery can lose its shine due to perfume, fluor in the water or even acidic ph value of your skin. With mild cleaning with a moist cloth you will preserve the shine and beauty of your jewellery. Warning! Procedures of cleaning gold jewellery are recommended only if the jewellery is without any precious stones, such as pearls or opals. The cleaning of such jewellery requires professional help.
