White Gold Anklets - Tips for Cleaning and Storage

White gold anklets are always fun to have on hand, even if you do not get a chance to wear them very often. To make the most out of your anklets, you may want to learn how to properly clean and store them for wear in the future. This is not a complicated process, but it can change a lot about the way you look and how long your jewelry lasts. Follow the tips below and hopefully you will be able to ensure the lifetime of your anklet.

White gold anklets can get tangled with other jewelry fairly easily. Thus it is always a good idea to store them in their own container or slot in your jewelry box. You can use small bags like you would find buttons in for new sweater. These are readily available at any fabric or craft store. If the anklet will not bend like that, you can get a small box to put it in, or you can set it in its own section of the jewelry box. Do whatever you can to prevent tangling because trying to pull the jewelry apart can cause damage in the long run.
When it comes to cleaning, you can buy gold cleaner for your white gold anklets. There are machines available that you can use to soak the jewelry in solution until it polishes clean. You must be sure that whatever you get is specific to white gold, but if it is, it could be a great tool for you. You might also be able to get your anklets cleaned at a local jewelry store for a small fee. Some places offer free cleaning, but that is usually only if you are a former customer of the store. Otherwise, you might have to pay a small fee to get the job done.

Try not to wear your white gold anklets if they will not be visible. There is no sense in adding wear to the anklets if no one is getting the benefit of seeing them. If you have not worn them in awhile, you may get them cleaned just to get rid of general dust. The more often you use them though, the more often you will need to go through cleaning. This is especially important if you have stones in the anklets as the prongs holding the stones may be compromised by dirt. Just devote a little effort to taking care of your anklets, and it will go a long way.
