The Price of K Gold
The price of K gold jewelry is determined by purity, weight, design, and craftsmanship. Purity and weight represent the content of pure gold within a piece of jewelry but is not the sole factor which determines price. The charm, durability, and comfort of jewelry can be enhanced through excellent design. Exquisite craftsmanship can also make your jewelry last a lifetime with proper care. Most K gold accessories are machine-made while handmade items are relatively more expensive.
K Gold Maintenance and Cleaning
For any type of K gold, the basic maintenance method is generally the same. Here are some tips for maintaining K gold that will keep your jewelry shining at all times.
1. Avoid Impact:
When wearing jewelry, K gold may sometimes be deformed due to impact, which may cause the gemstone to loosen or fall off. If it accidentally gets hit, the best way is to bring it directly back to ALUXE. There are the professional consultants inspect it for you and repair any damage immediately.
2. Separate Storage:
The varying hardness of jewelry and precious metals can result in damage from rubbing against each other. As such, it’s best to avoid storing K gold accessories within the same drawer or jewelry box with other jewelry. It’s best to store separately in their individual packaging, then place them neatly to avoid any scratches. When not being worn, accessories should be stored away to avoid exposure to air, thereby decreasing the chances of oxidation.
3. Avoid Chemicals:
When wearing K gold jewelry, avoid direct contact with chemical products such as lotions, toners, hair gel, and perfume. If you have the habit of spraying perfume, it is recommended to spray it after wearing the jewelry. Avoid swimming pools, hot springs, and seawater because the chlorine in the water combines with sweat to form corrosive chemicals. Also, avoid using cleaning products such as bleach and hydrochloric acid. Once in contact with these chemicals, the shine of K gold can easily become dull.
At home, prepare a soft bristle brush, mild detergent, a basin, and soft clean cloth to simply clean your beloved jewelry. Add some mild detergent into clean water then clean gently with a soft bristle brush; for sweat stains, oil stains, or severe stains, pre-soak in water for 15-30 minutes before cleaning. Remember to rinse with clean water afterwards to remove any detergent residue. Finally, wipe with a soft clean cloth to restore luster. Remember to avoid cleaning products with abrasives (such as polishing pastes, toothpaste with abrasive particles, fine sandpaper, fine gauze, etc.) to prevent damaging or decreasing the weight of your K gold jewelry. Naturally, you can also drop them off at any ALUXE location for our professional consultants to clean and maintain your jewelry to help maintain their sparkle and luster.
