Take care of your beloved jewelry pieces

How to clean and store your jewelry pieces

Jewelry pieces should be treated with care and love.

There are some important things to keep in mind so your jewelry will last for generations. Pieces of jewelry are delicate little objects and even if they are made of resistant materials in order to be worn everyday, it is still important to follow some general advice for them to keep their original beauty. 

The natural habitat of our Gold nuggets is the water, so they are not afraid of it, plus Golpira jewelry pieces are not gold plated so the gold won't fade away. Nevertheless we don't advise to wear them while your are taking a shower. Water is a natural abrasive. Think of the rivers that over time have carved their way through canyons of stone. Over time the same thing can happen with your gold. Though showering won't wear down your gold as quickly as chlorine or salt water. If you do wear your jewelry while taking a bath, washing dishes or swimming, please be caution with the shower gel and other washing lotions since they can easily stuck in the edges of the Gold nuggets. 

But no worries the gold jewelry and the gold nuggets can be cleaned lightly using a soft cloth. For a more thorough cleaning, soak your gold jewelry in a glass of warm water with a drop or two of non-detergent soap to help remove any oils and loosen buildup. Remove after a few minutes and pat dry with a soft cloth. To clean further, use a very soft, worn toothbrush to carefully remove any dirt particles or debris from more intricate components and settings. 

Store your magnificent jewelry in a box or pouch for example. Give them a break. Especially when you are sleeping, your jewelry needs its beauty rest too. Necklaces get tangled up quickly while we sleep and unfortunately rings and earrings can be damaged.   

There is a right and wrong way to take on and off your ring. The right way is to take your rings on and off by pulling from the sides of the shank. Unfortunately many people remove the rings by pressing with one finger on top of the Gold nugget and the other on the bottom of the ring. Over time this will loosen your gold nugget and make it susceptible to falling off. 

Trust us your jewelry pieces are already in amazing shape! They do not need sport. So don't take them to strenuous physical activities.  

Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off. 

Last but not least, do not hesitate to bring us your Golpira jewelry for a professional cleansing once a year, or in order to polish an unsightly little scratch. We are glad to help. Just write us an email to info@golpira.de and let us know about it. 

Enjoy your sparkling jewelry!
