Twelve Tips for Greater Enjoyment of Your Gold and Silver
By Sam Serio
Jewelry can be beautiful to look at, fun to buy, and can
make bold and revealing statements about you. Hear are some tips for greater enjoyment of
your favorite gold and silver jewelry.
Never swim in a chlorinated pool while wearing gold and
Always apply make-up, perfumes, oils or colognes before
you put on your gold and silver jewelry
Keep both your skin and your gold and silver jewelry
clean and free of oil.
Using an absorbent, abrasive-free body powder on areas
that your gold and silver jewelry touches your skin can help with skin discoloration.
If you do have any skin discoloration you may need to
move to a higher gold content. Say, from 14K gold jewelry to 18K jewelry.
Are your gold and silver chains all tied-up in knots? If
so, heres a nifty little trick for straightening them out. Dust your chain with a
little talcum powder and then try to unknot it. If the knot is stubborn, place a small
drop of baby oil on a sheet of wax paper. Lay the knot in the oil and work it out with two
pins; then clean the chain as instructed below.
Don't be afraid to wear gold and silver jewelry
together. Artful use of accessories that use both metals provide an effective visual
segue' or bridge.
For daily cleaning it is recommended to use a simple
jewelry polishing cloth that is impregnated with special jewelry cleaner. These are widely
available and are very easy to use. Store your cloth in a plastic zip-lock bag, and keep
in your jewelry drawer or armoire. It is a good idea to have one cleaning cloth for gold
and one for silver.
For a Super Spring Cleaning of your gold and silver
jewelry, mix 1cup of clean warm water with ½ cup of ammonia. Soak your jewelry in this
solution for about 15 minutes; gently scrub with a soft, clean toothbrush, then rinse in
warm water. Air dry on an absorbent paper towel. When thoroughly dry, you may lightly buff
with a soft flannel cloth.
If a ring gets stuck on your finger; spray the area
surrounding the ring with Windex. Wiggle and twist the ring right off.
For a slightly more "in depth" cleaning you
may want to use a liquid jewelry cleaner.
For cleaning badly tarnished silver, here's a neat
Cover the inside bottom of a heat-proof glass dish or
bowl with a piece of aluminum foil, shiny side up.
Place the tarnished silver in the bottom of the dish,
contacting the aluminum foil.
Add 1 heaping tablespoon of baking soda, and then slowly
pour boiling water to cover the piece. The tarnish will gradually collect on the aluminum
Remove your silver, rinse thoroughly, and polish.
