How to Clean Gold Jewelry
3 Methods that work
Although gold doesn't tarnish, it can easily get dirty. To clean your precious rings, bracelets, necklaces and other gold jewelry, just follow the steps below.
Dish Soap Method
1 Put a few drops of liquid dish detergent in a bowl of warm water. Mix gently. For even better results, you can use sodium-free seltzer water or club soda...the carbonation loosens soil and removes debris.
2 Soak the gold jewelry in the solution for 15 minutes.
3 Scrub each piece of jewelry with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Stiff bristles can scratch the surface of your jewelry. Special brushes designed for this purpose are best, but an eyebrow brush will also work.
4 Rinse each piece in warm running water.
5 Blot dry with a soft cloth.
Use this method sparingly. Even though it's very effective, doing it too often can damage your gold. (Ammonia can also darken platinum.)
1 Mix one part ammonia to six parts water.
2 Soak the jewelry in the mixture for no more than one minute. Using a strainer can help with pulling it all out quickly at once.
3 Rinse the jewelry thoroughly under running water.
4 Dry the jewelry with a soft polishing cloth.
For Jewelry with Gemstones
Pieces of jewelry with gemstones that are glued into the setting should not be submerged in water.
1 Wipe the jewelry with a cloth that's been dabbed in dish soap solution, as instructed above.
2 "Rinse" the jewelry with a cloth dampened with plain water.
3 Lay the pieces upside down after cleaning so any remaining moisture won't soak into the setting.

How to Calculate the Value of Scrap Gold
Formula and Explanation
If you have any scrap gold, you can sell it, but for how much? Gold prices tend to rise along with worries of war or inflation but before you bring gold jewelry, dental fillings, teeth, nuggets, and bars to a scrap gold dealer's counter (or send it off by mail) you should know exactly what it's worth. Most scrap gold dealers keep the calculation a secret. Here is their formula.
Jewelry signifies items of personal adornment, such as necklaces, rings, brooches, earrings and bracelets. Jewelry may be made from any material, such as gemstones, precious metals or shells, besides other materials, depending on cultural differences and availability of materials. Jewelry may be appreciated because of geometric or other patterns, or meaningful symbols. (Items such as belts and handbags etc. are considered to be accessories rather than jewelry.)
The word jewelry is derived from the word jewel, which was Anglicised from the Old French "jouel" circa the 13th century. Further tracing leads back to the Latin word "jocale", meaning plaything. Jewelry is one of the oldest forms of body adornment; recently found 100,000 year-old beads made from Nassarius shells, are thought to be the oldest known jewelry.
