4. How to Clean Gold Plated Jewelry

Jewelers recommended wiping down gold-plated jewelry with a damp cotton ball or a microfiber cloth after each wear to remove any dirt or smudges accumulated on the surface.

You can also do a more thorough cleaning by soaking your piece for about 5 to 10 minutes in a small bowl filled with warm water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. If the piece has embellishments like gemstones, avoid the soak and wipe your jewelry with a cotton ball soaked with the cleaning solution. You may use a cotton swab to clean hard-to-reach crevices and corners for angular pieces.

After the the initial clean give your jewelry a quick rinse and dry it thoroughly before storing or wearing it. To prolong the life of your gold-plated avoid exposure to lotions, perfumes, chemicals, acids, and alcohol while wearing the jewelry.

How Often Should You Clean Your Jewelry?

Now that you know the best ways to clean jewelry, you’re probably wondering how often you’ll need to do it. 

There’s no set answer. It will vary piece by piece, depending on how often you wear the jewelry. If it’s a special piece that you only wear a few times a year, once a year is perfectly fine. If it’s an everyday piece, you’ll probably want to give it a weekly clean. Use your judgment to determine how often you’ll need to clean your jewelry. 

Cleaning is an easy way to keep your jewelry looking amazing for longer. Make it a regular part of your cleaning routine and your jewelry will thank you!
