Expert Care Tips for Maintaining Your Gold Chains

Gold chains are a much-used staple in most jewellery boxes. Both classy and elegant, they are perfect for everyday looks as well as more formal occasions.

Here at Adelaide Jewellery Repairs, we sell and repair gold chains in Adelaide, and in this article, we are going to provide you with expert advice on how to properly look after your gold chains.

Correct Storage

When you are not wearing your gold chains, you should store them in a soft-line jewellery box, away from direct sunlight. Don’t overfill your jewellery box, as this is how chains can become tangled. We also recommend that you keep your box stored in a safe place away from heaters and radiators that produce extreme temperature changes.

Regular Cleaning

As gold chains are made up of dozens of small links, it is very easy for dirt and dust to become trapped between these links. Over time, this can cause your gold chains to lose their shine. But there is a relatively easy solution. Monthly cleaning of your gold chains using warm, soapy water or an ultrasonic cleaner can leave them looking bright and sparkly for years to come.

Avoid Wearing Chains in the Pool or Shower

While many people wear their gold chains 24/7, this can end up shortening the lifespan of your jewellery. When you are sleeping, your chain could get caught on your bedding and get tangled. Showering with your chains every day could cause them to lose their shine. For this reason, we advise our customers to keep them in their dedicated jewellery box when not in use.

Quick Repairs

If you notice any damage to your gold chains, it is best to get them repaired as soon as possible. Don’t wear damaged jewellery, as this could lead to further damage and the possibility of losing your chain!
