May 23, 2008, Newsletter Issue #118: Cleaning and caring for gold earrings

Tip of the Week

The higher the karat number of your gold earrings, the softer the gold. 24-karat gold is pure gold, while 14- and 18-karat golds are mixed with other alloys. Though 24-karat gold is worth more, 14- and 18-karat gold earrings are considerably harder. The higher the quality of the gold, the longer it will maintain its gleaming appearance.

To keep your gold earrings clean, use a mixture of water and non-detergent soap. Scrub your gold earrings with a soft brush to prevent scratching.
