Gold jewelry doesn’t heavily tarnish like silver will, but it does still tarnish and needs a cleaning. If you are near the Ben David Jewelers location, stop in and they will clean your jewelry for you while you browse. But, if you are far away or don’t have the time to stop in before a big event, here are some tips on how to clean your gold jewelry yourself.

Gold will develop a little tarnish and get a buildup of body oils and dirt. So, you need to clean it from time to time to make it look its very best.

Grab a little bowl and make it about ¾ full of warm water. Add three drops of dish washing liquid and swish it around. Drop your gold jewelry in and let it soak for about 15 minutes. When time is up, use an old soft bristle toothbrush to very gently knock loose dirt from the nooks and crannies of your rings, necklaces and bracelets.

Put something in your drain like a mesh hair trap to keep anything important from going down the drain.  Place the freshly washed jewelry in a small strainer/sifter and rinse the jewelry. Place it on a dry towel. When you have all your jewelry rinsed, gently pat each piece dry with the towel.

Inspect around the gemstone to make sure the points are still adequate to hold the gems in place. If anything looks a little suspicious, take it to Ben David Jewelers to have the points built up before you wear it.

Having a gold polishing cloth at home is the ideal way to remove tarnish and get that high sheen back on your gold jewelry. Ask to purchase one the next time you are at the jeweler, or purchase one online. After using the cloth, you’ll need to wash the gold jewelry as above.
