SOLID GOLD:

- You can wear it anywhere, anytime.

- To clean it, you have three options:
1. Use a polishing cloth
2. Mix a few drops of detergent-free soap with warm water. One piece at a time, soak your jewelry and the use a very soft brush to lightly clean each piece. Rinse with care and lightly dry the jewelry with a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
3. Go by a jewelry shop to get it polished.
