Distinctive Characteristics of 24 Karat Gold
Gold is one of nature’s most exceptional elements. It’s beautiful, radiant, does not tarnish or decay, and will shine for millions of years regardless of whether its stored in a vault or at the bottom of the ocean. Gold’s unique properties make it easily discernible from every other metal and substance, which is evident when simply comparing the look and feel of your 24 Karat Menē jewelry to any piece of jewelry crafted from 18 Karat gold or gold of a lower purity.
Another distinctive characteristic of gold is its relative softness to other metals, which was appreciated as a symbol of purity and authenticity for thousands of years.
You will find that pure 24 karat gold jewelry is generally quite malleable. Your Menē jewelry will form fit to your wrist, neck, or finger over time with everyday wear, making it special, valuable, and unique to you. Your gold jewelry can always be polished by a local jeweler or restored to its original state through our Menē Care service.
Should you wish to maintain the original condition of your Menē jewelry, we recommend wearing it on special occasions and ensuring it’s stored correctly after each use.
Storing Your Menē Jewelry
To best preserve your gold jewelry and prevent scratching, ensure you are storing it separately from other jewelry in its original pouch when not in use. Additionally, secure clasps and closures prior to storing your jewelry to avoid scratches and tangled chains.
Maintaining Your Menē Jewelry
Remove your jewelry prior to washing your hands and cleaning to prevent contact with chemicals or abrasives such as bleach that may cause discolouring. You should also remove your jewelry before exercising or engaging in physical activity that could lead to scratches and dents.
Avoid applying perfume and makeup while wearing your jewelry, as certain ingredients contained in cosmetic products can be harmful.
Caring for Your Menē Jewelry
Care for your gold jewelry on a regular basis by wiping it with a cotton cloth after wear, then store it separately from other jewelry in its original pouch.
On occasion, you may find it helpful to gently soak your jewelry in warm water and mild dish detergent to remove everyday pollutants that could cause your gold jewelry to appear dull. Ensure you properly dry your jewelry after self-cleaning prior to wear or storage.
Should you wish to have your jewelry professionally cleaned, please locate a local jeweler who is trusted to properly handle and care for gold.
