GOLD CARATS EXPLAINED


9 carat gold has 37.5% pure gold; it is the most affordable form of gold jewellery and portrays a light yellow hue. Its higher percentage of other metals, makes it stronger and more durable and particularly suited to the creation of jewellery. 14 carat gold has about 58.5% pure gold and has a warm yellow hue. 18 carat gold contains 75% gold, with the rest made up of other more durable metal alloys used to add colour and strength. 24 carat gold is the ultimate gold carat – it doesn't go any higher than this. It's the purest form and consists of 99.9% gold. It is naturally yellow and highly valuable, but very soft and malleable, so it is not usually used to make fine jewellery or intricate objects.

REGULAR CLEANING TIPS


When worn regularly, your gold jewellery is exposed to skin oils, perspiration, dust, makeup, and more. To keep its shine, you should clean your Jewellery regularly with a solution of 10-parts warm water and 2-parts soap. A few extra tips: - Soak your gold jewellery pieces and then scrub them gently with a very soft brush. Rinse under clean water and blot dry with a cloth. - For an extra shine, use a jewellery polishing cloth after this. Do not use a paper towel or tissue as these can scratch your jewellery. - Don't overdo it: Only clean your jewellery as needed when it’s visibly dirty.




HOW TO STORE YOUR GOLD JEWELRY


After you’ve worn and cleaned your gold jewellery for the day, the next step in taking proper care of it is to store it properly. Use a jewellery box/ pouch provided. This prevents jewellery from tangling or scratching each other.
