    Keeping Jewelry Clean

    Posted on February 25th, 2014 by Joe G

    If you wear jewelry regularly, it is important that these items stay clean. Here are a few tips on maintaining your jewelry’s sparkle and shine.

    • Remove jewelry before bathing or swimming
    • Remove jewelry before using cleaning products
    • Remove jewelry when exercising or playing sports
    • Clean jewelry with polish cloths rather than paper towels or tissue
    • Clean jewelry with warm water – not hot water!
    • Do not clean jewelry that is damaged
    • Regularly inspect the condition of jewelry and address damage as soon as possible

    Different jewelry materials require different cleaning care; so consult professionals before you use a cleaning product you are unsure about. If you have pieces of jewelry that are broken, mismatched or that you simply have no use for, bring them to Chicago Gold Gallery. Our expert appraisers pay top dollar for your unwanted items. Visit our location today or call us at (773) 338-7787.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    Awesome place!

    What a super knowledgeable gemologist. After all that experience also they are soooo willing to help and answer all the questions I had. Excellent experience. They went above and beyond for me. Highly recommended. Super trustworthy.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
