Health And Attitude Benefits From Gold Bracelets

Rose gold bracelets can be worn to increase vitality, prosperity and to bring good luck. Amongst the major mineral elements gold is considered to be a rare, precious metal.

When product designers take their design concept to the form of a white gold charm bracelet, then they're referencing thousands of years of human culture and preferences for jewelry as a vehicle for expressing not merely social status, but a gold charm bracelet carrying evocative and metaphorical story telling properties.

Gold Bracelet

When selecting white gold charm bracelets and investigating its authenticity, you should look for a designer trademark on the inside of the band. If no such designer trademark is embossed on the alleged gold charm bracelet, then you should look for another gold bangle which bears proper trademark insignia. The trademark on gold charm bracelets should be near the clasp, and next to the carat quality insignia. The trademark on a man's gold bracelet, or any type of gold bracelet including rose colored, will be designated as the designer-manufacturer's name, symbol, or initial.

Caring For Gold Bracelets

What about use and care and maintenance for your gold charm bracelet? For example if discoloration begins to show on your gold charm bracelet, then the likely "culprit" or cause may include your makeup, body perspiration, or chemicals such as chlorine. You should realize that cosmetics contain compounds that are harder than gold, causing the gold on gold cuff bracelets to scratch or fluctuate in color as the surface oxidizes due to surface chemical activity. Perspiration can also cause gold bracelets to corrode, due to the potentially acidic nature of body oils and minerals excreted through the skin. Amazingly, when you perspire, you produce a chemical that has the ability to corrode a 14k gold charm bracelet.

How to clean your gold bracelet: To clean jewelry, a jeweler's cloth is recommended to shine your gold bracelet. A cleaning solution, which is 1 part ammonia, and 2 parts water, may be used to clean a gold charm bracelet and other gold items. Never use this mixture directly on pearls, turquoise, or soft gems which may be designed or imbedded into a gold bracelet as these gems stones will be damaged by the chemical interaction, leaving the surface dull.
