You should only wear it on a very limited basis. Only wear your gold necklace on special occasions. With longer wear, they become more damaged. Take them off to avoid being in contact with cleansers.
Chlorine should not come anywhere near it. A gold necklace does not do well when put into a chlorinated pool. You must be aware that chinking may result due to deterioration of the structure.
Keep the chain stowed in a separate holder to avoid damage. No one enjoys the experience of untangling a mess of necklaces pulled from a jewelry box. You will break the gold chain if you try to untangle it with too much force. This is a much better way to keep your necklaces organized. You must ensure that there is absolutely no dust or moisture. Another way of keeping the necklace in your jewelry box is to wrap it carefully by itself in tissue paper to avoid scratching.
From time to time you should polish your necklace. Warm tap water with a little soap or other type of cleaner may be utilized to clean a gold necklace. If you put some dish detergent in to a bit of warm water, it will work just as well. An old toothbrush can be used to softly brush it being sure not to overlook the crevices. Once it has been washed, dry it with cloth free of lint. Remove all dust, makeup, and perspiration from the surface. A non-abrasive cleaner will give you a professional look, but if your jewelry is set with semiprecious stones, check first to verify that it is safe to use the cleaner on them before you start.
Get the necklace cleaned professionally. It can easily reduce the length of your necklaces life if you send it to just any old jeweler for steam cleaning. Some necklaces made of gold need to be cleaned with an ultrasonic machine. Be sure to go to a reputable jewelry shop.
Be sure to check your necklace very carefully after each and every time you wear it. There is every chance of getting damage when we use a malleable metal like gold in necklaces. If you find any fragile points on your necklace then get it repaired straight away at professional jeweler. Refrain from trying to do this without assistance it might result in further injury to the chain.
