Gold Jewellery can be easy to retain the finish and value. It's just a matter of knowing what to do and what to avoid.

  1. Prevent scratching by storing jewellery - To help avoid scratching your gold jewellery, it's a good habit to separate your gold jewellery in a compartmentalised jewellery box.
  2. During personal hygiene, remove gold jewellery - Soap tends to cause a film that can make gold appear dull and dingy, much like diamonds. Removing your jewellery when you shower or bathe will help prolong the beauty of your gold.
  3. Prevent tarnishing by regularly cleaning your gold jewellery - The gold in most jewellery is an alloy, which means it is a mixture of different metals. Being a mixture of other metals enable gold to be practical in every day usage. However because of these same inclusions, your jewellery can tarnish. Tarnishing of gold jewellery can be caused by a number things: after shave, fluoride in water, perfume, or even the acidity in your skin. A simple soft jewellery polishing cloth with tarnish preventive will help you keep the gold beautiful and shining. These solutions and polishing cloths are available at Diamond Boulevard.

The procedures for cleaning gold should not be used if your gold jewellery contains any precious stones, pearls or opals. To clean these requires careful and expert attention. Diamond Boulevard has the necessary expertise and specialised equipment.
