If your favorite gold jewelry does not look as fresh and shiny as it did in the beginning, then you are aware of the importance of maintaining their purity and shine on a regular basis.
Gold jewelry often carries a story of love, warmth and affection, especially if it is a family heirloom or a gift from someone special to you. They may also make special sense if this is the jewelry you bought for yourself with your first paycheck. Gold jewelry is special because of the feelings and emotions associated with it. With the sentimental and material value that accompanies it, you value and preserve it. So, of course, you want to keep it looking good for as long as possible. But the cost and time it takes to get it professionally cleaned by a jeweler can make you give up and lock it in a cupboard where no one can see it. This is certainly not your goal.
Fortunately, there are ways to clean your gold jewelry yourself.
The use of some chemicals and compounds can restore their original luster. But keep in mind that some cleaners are not recommended for soft stones such as pearls and opals that can be encrusted with your gold jewelry. It is best to clean them with soap and water only.
