Jewelry Care 101: 14K Gold Chains

February 15, 2024 2 min read

14K gold chains require careful maintenance to keep them in optimal condition. To ensure their longevity, it's important to handle them delicately and take certain precautions. Avoid wearing your 14K gold chain during exercise and other physical activities as it can easily become kinked or damaged. Additionally, it's advisable to remove the chain before sleeping or showering, as exposure to water and movement can cause it to tangle or lose its shape. When not in use, lay the chain flat and in the locked position to prevent any potential tangling, twisting, or bending.

To further protect your 14K gold chain, refrain from applying lotions or creams directly on it. Lotions can leave behind residue that can accumulate, resulting in a scummy appearance. Regular cleaning should be avoided due to the intricate design of the chain. Instead, focus on preventing dirt and buildup by removing the chain during daily activities and storing it properly when not being worn.

To properly clean 14K gold jewelry, it is recommended to use a soft toothbrush and dish soap. Gently scrubbing the jewelry will help remove any dirt or grime. Remember to rinse off any residue thoroughly after cleaning. Another effective method is to use a polishing cloth and gently rub the gold pieces. This will help restore their shine and remove any tarnish that may have accumulated. It is important to handle your gold jewelry with care during the cleaning process to avoid any damage or scratching. Soaking the piece of jewelry in ourFoam Jewelry Cleaner for 10 minutes will help break down the dirt. 

By following these care instructions, you can ensure that your 14K gold chain remains beautiful and intricately designed for years to come.
