Know When to Wear Your Gold Jewelry

If you have a beautiful collection of gold jewelry, it is important to protect it in order to maintain its value and appearance. Knowing when to wear your jewelry and when to keep it in storage will help you avoid damaging or losing it. Jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off. You should also avoid wearing jewelry when working with your hands or with chemicals.

Avoid Touching Gold Coins

One of the best ways to protect your gold coins is to avoid touching them. When you touch coins, the oils from your fingers can discolor or cause other types of damage to the coins. Your fingers may also have dirt that can cause further damage to your collection. Try to wear gloves and only touch the edges of your coins when necessary.

Find the Right Storage

It is important to protect your gold jewelry or coins both when you are using them and when you are not using them. This means finding the right type of storage container to keep each item safe and secure. Look for a high-quality jewelry box to protect and separate your gold jewelry. Coin books or other types of storage can keep coins safe while allowing you to display them.

Visit a Professional

Knowing the value of your gold pieces is important for maintaining a proper collection. Find out how much each item is worth by visiting a coin dealer. These professionals offer appraisals that can help you determine the true value of each item in your collection.
