Taking Care of Antique Style Necklaces
Like all gold items, antique-style necklaces should never be worn and sprayed perfume or cologne directly. Store them in dry pouches when not in use. Often it is tempting to get the piece polished again. It is advisable to not get the piece polished. The soft glow that develops with age on gold is a rich colour which perfectly goes with the style of an antique necklace. Burnishing the metal will take away the old regal look.
