Spring Cleaning: Tips to Keep Your Gold Jewelry Gleaming

When gold interacts with natural oils or lotions and cosmetics, it can lose its original radiant glow. Taking the time to clean and maintain your gold jewelry ensures the accumulation of dirt and oils is prevented and the jewelry retains its elegance and allure.

Here, we share some simple yet effective methods to clean your gold jewelry at home, ensuring they retain their shine and beauty for an extended period.

What to use:

  • Mild dish soap
  • Warm water
  • Small bowl
  • Soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Dry cotton cloth

Before cleaning your piece, gently shake it to check for any loose diamonds. Any rattling might indicate a loose prong, risking the loss of a diamond. Ensure that you don’t clean your jewelry over the sink to avoid accidental slips leading to jewelry loss down the drain. 

Prepare a solution of warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap in a large bowl. Submerge your piece in this solution. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub away any accumulated buildup or grime. Pay extra attention to recessed areas where dirt might accumulate.

Once you finish cleaning, rinse the jewelry in a bowl of clean water to remove any soap residue. Dry your gold thoroughly with a clean cotton cloth to restore its brilliance.

After cleaning, it’s essential to inspect your jewelry carefully for any loose or missing diamonds before disposing of the water.
