How To Clean Your Gold Jewelry

How To Clean Your Gold Jewelry
|by Heather Ng

Since gold doesn't tarnish it's a lot easier to clean than sterling silver. This is for most gemstones (rubies, diamonds, sapphires) but super soft ones like pearls, opals and coral should be cleaned separately. Here's what you'll need: 

1. Soft bristle toothbrush

2. Bowl

3. Warm water

4. Mild dish soap

Soak jewelry in the warm water that has a few drops of dish soap in it for 20 minutes. Then gently brush the jewelry with the new soft bristled toothbrush. Getting all the grime and oils and dirt that lodge around stones and in crevices. Rinse with cool water. Use a microfiber towel to dry. Be careful not to use a paper towel, as the fibers in it can mark up soft gold pieces.
