Tips on Keeping Your Gold-Filled Jewelry Pieces Looking Great

Hey there, jewelry lovers! Let's talk about one of my all-time favorites: 14K Gold-Filled jewelry! It's the budget-friendly alternative to solid gold, and I can't get enough of it! If you missed my previous blog post where I gushed about this shiny goodness, check it out insert blog post link here.

Today, I'm sharing some awesome tips to keep your gold-filled beauties looking dazzling for years to come!

First up, let's wear our treasures with a little thoughtfulness. Just like their solid gold cousins, 14K Gold-Filled pieces aren't too keen on hanging out with salt or chlorine. So, before you dive into the pool or frolic in the ocean, remember to take off your jewelry. Salt and chlorine can be real mischief-makers, munching away at the top layer of your gold-filled goodies and leaving them looking a little lackluster. But hey, we've got you covered! Take off your bling before diving in, and put it back on once you're all dry and fabulous.

Now, let's talk about keeping that sparkle alive with regular cleaning. It's as easy as pie! Grab a soft cloth and give your jewelry a gentle polish. This will keep your pieces shining like the stars!

But if you're in the mood for a little wash-time fun, here's what you'll need: a soft cloth, a cozy towel, lukewarm water, mild soap or cleaning product (optional), and a soft toothbrush. Ready for some DIY magic? Follow these steps:

  • Find a big bowl and fill it up with warm water. Add some mild soap or cleaning product if you fancy.
  • Give your jewelry a quick 3-minute soak in the bowl of bliss.
  • Take it out, and using a soft toothbrush, give it a gentle brushing inside and out.
  • Rinse those sparkling pieces under running water, and then lovingly pat them dry with the towel.
  • The grand finale: Let your jewelry air dry overnight. Ta-da!

Easy Peasy!


Pssst, here's a pro-tip: If you ever forget to take off your jewelry during those salt and chlorine-filled adventures (oopsie!), don't worry. Just clean your pieces as soon as possible, and they'll thank you for it. 

If you prefer to use a jewelry cloth or dip, remember to read the ingredients first and make sure it's rated for use with 14K gold jewelry. 

Now, let's chat about storing your precious pieces. Keeping them safe and sound when not in use is a fantastic idea. Jewelry left lying around can get damaged or even decide to go on a little adventure of their own (we don't want that!). If you have multiple pieces (lucky you!), give them their own comfy space using individual soft lined boxes or pouches. Oh, and remember to make sure your jewels are dry before tucking them away for the night.

In conclusion, caring for 14K Gold-Filled jewelry is a piece of cake (or a piece of jewelry!). A little thoughtfulness and TLC will have you getting compliments for years to come!
