People who buy gold necklaces in Sydney naturally want to keep them looking their best for as long as possible. Keeping your necklace clean, stored properly, and in good condition will ensure that it shines beautifully every time that you put it on. Here are some tips to help your gold necklaces to last your life time.
Store Gold Properly
You should put your gold jewellery on last–after showering, dressing, and applying moisturiser, makeup, perfume, or sunscreen. That way, it won’t get products on it that might damage the gold, and it won’t get caught in your clothes. Take off gold jewellery first at night. Store your gold necklaces separately, on hooks, in velvet-lined trays, or in small jewellery purpose bags, to prevent scratches and getting tangled.
Clean Gold Regularly
A gold necklace without stones is easy to clean. Place the necklace in warm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid and rub it lightly with your fingers. If the chain has a heavy braid, you can use a brush with soft bristles to get harder-to-reach areas. Do not use baking soda or toothpaste, as these materials are abrasive. Be sure to rinse your necklace thoroughly and dry it flat on a cloth.
Have Gold Checked Annually
Ideally, when you buy gold necklaces in Sydney, you should take them to a jeweller each year to have them checked for broken or loose parts. While you’re there, you can get your gold professionally cleaned to restore a like-new shine.
