Welcome to the world of timeless elegance and self-expression through jewelry! Whether you're a seasoned jewelry enthusiast or a newcomer to the art of adorning yourself, understanding the proper care for your treasures is essential to ensure they shine for generations. In this Jewelry Care Guide, we'll delve into the specific nuances of caring for solid gold pieces, offering you invaluable tips to keep your collection looking as radiant as the day you acquired it.

Caring for Solid Gold Jewelry

  • Cleaning Solid Gold Jewelry:
    Solid gold is known for its enduring beauty, but it's not impervious to dirt and oils. To maintain its luster, regularly clean your gold pieces with a mild detergent and warm water. Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush, to gently scrub away any residue, paying attention to intricate details.

  • Avoiding Harsh Chemicals:
    Steer clear of harsh chemicals such as chlorine, bleach, and strong cleaning agents. These substances can tarnish and damage gold. Remove your gold jewelry before engaging in activities that expose it to these chemicals, such as swimming or household cleaning.

  • Storing Solid Gold Jewelry:
    Store your gold pieces in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. To prevent scratching, consider placing each piece in a soft pouch or in Zahav's jewelry box.

Body Jewelry and Piercings

  • Daily Cleaning Routine:
    For body jewelry and piercings, maintaining a consistent cleaning routine is crucial. Clean the jewelry with a saline solution or a mild, non-alcoholic antiseptic solution. Gently rotate the jewelry to ensure the cleaning solution reaches all areas, and avoid excessive movement that may irritate the piercing.

  • Choosing the Right Materials:
    Opt for high-quality materials like solid gold for your body jewelry. These materials are less likely to cause allergic reactions and are more resistant to tarnishing. Avoid using costume jewelry or low-quality metals for piercings, as they may lead to skin irritation and infections.

  • Mindful Activities:
    Be cautious during activities that may put stress on your piercings, such as contact sports or excessive twisting. Remove body jewelry during these activities to prevent damage or injury.

  • Healing Time:
    Allow ample time for piercings to heal before changing or removing jewelry. Consult with a professional piercer for advice on when it's safe to switch to different pieces.
