Jewelry Care Tips
While gold has a shine and a luster all on its own, its also a soft metal. This makes it susceptible to dings, scratches, and dents. Be mindful of your gold rings, watches, and bracelets while you wear and remove them.
Chlorine is gold's worst enemy with repeat exposure. Household cleaners with acid or abrasives will damage your jewelry's finish.
Make-up, perfume, hairspray, and lotions can damage your gold. Be sure to put these things on before your jewelry to limit the exposure.
Little Tip to clean your gold: soaking is the key. You can soak your gold jewelry pieces for 3 hours and then scrub them extremely gently with a very soft brush. Rinse under water and blot dry with a cloth.
Bonus tip : For an extra shine, use a jewelry polishing cloth after this! Do not use a paper towel or tissue as these can scratch your jewelry. If you need to order a polishing cloth please send us an email here: Hortense@hortensejewelry.com and we will send you one.
