Caring for Gold

Gold can become scratched and so should be kept apart from other jewellery and abrasives should be avoided.

Chlorine should be avoided as it attacks the alloys in gold.

Gold on its own can be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner.

Wash in warm soapy water and clean with a soft brush. However care will mainly depend on what is required for any gem stone which has been set into the metal.

•    Avoid contact with other jewellery
•    Avoid chlorine
•    Clean in warm soapy water
•    Clean in ultrasonic cleaner
•    Take care to use cleaning materials appropriate to any gem set in the gold.
