Wondering whether it's safe to wear your favourite gold jewellery in the shower or while swimming? We’ve got all the tips you need to keep your gold jewellery sparkling, even in water. 

Potential risks of wearing gold jewellery in water 

Wearing gold jewellery in the shower or while swimming may come with some risks. Chlorine in swimming pools, saltwater in the ocean and harsh chemicals in soaps can all potentially damage the surface of gold jewellery over time. 

Exposure to water, especially water containing chlorine or salt, can lead to corrosion and tarnishing of gold jewellery. This can result in a dull appearance and may require professional cleaning to restore its shine.

Tips for preserving your gold jewellery 

To minimise the risk of damage, it's generally best to remove your gold jewellery before engaging in water-related activities such as swimming, showering, or bathing. This simple precaution can help prolong the life of your pieces. 

When not wearing your gold jewellery, store it in a cool, dry place away from moisture. Consider using individual pouches or compartments to prevent tangling and scratching. 

Regularly clean your gold jewellery using gentle methods such as mild soap and water to remove any dirt or residue. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the surface of your jewellery. 

While it may be tempting to wear your gold jewellery everywhere you go, it's essential to exercise caution, especially when it comes to water exposure. By following these tips and taking proper care of your beloved pieces, you can enjoy their beauty for years to come, whether on land or in the water.
