How to Care for Your Gold Jewelry

At Parker Pawn and Jewelry, we know how important your gold jewelry pieces are to you. Whether they are family heirlooms, new pieces, or you’ve found a unique gold jewelry piece at one of our Parker Pawn & Jewelry’s stores, these items have significant value and caring for them is incredibly important for preserving their lustrous finish.

Gold is a soft metal so it’s important to take care when cleaning, storing, and wearing your gold jewelry pieces. It is best to remove your gold jewelry when swimming, cleaning, or even showering as chlorine and some waters can be too abrasive for your gold jewelry.

Store your gold jewelry in separate jewelry pouches or boxes from your other jewelry pieces to prevent other items from scratching your gold jewelry. You can take your gold jewelry to a jeweler for professional polishing, but you don’t want to do this too often as the abrasive chemicals used to polish your gold jewelry can be damaging in the long term.

Luckily, your gold jewelry can be cleaned with a simple solution of mild soap and water to remove dirt and residue. Simply mix a mild soap into a shallow bowl full of lukewarm water. If your gold jewelry does not have any gemstones, soak the gold jewelry for 20 to 30 minutes, and then wipe with a soft cloth to remove dirt. If your gold jewelry has gemstones, dip a soft cloth in the soap solution, and use it to gently clean your gold jewelry. Once you’ve removed the dirt with the soap solution, rinse with water or a clean cloth to remove soap residue from your gold jewelry. Then pat dry and air dry to remove any remaining moisture.

Now that your gold jewelry is clean and cared for, all that’s left to do is wear it! If you’re looking for unique gold jewelry to purchase and wear, or if you’re looking to sell your gold jewelry, Parker Pawn & Jewelry will help you with all your needs!

We wish this was a fiction story, but for too many in our community, sadly, it was reality this past month. The family at Parker Pawn & Jewelry appreciates the people of this community. Without them, we would not have been able to sustain our business since 1955, let alone have four locations! When the community hurts, we sympathize.

Bills needed to be paid, and we were happy to help.

Some of you have filed your taxes and are anxiously awaiting your tax refunds. You have plans for that money and you are hoping it shows up on time. Unfortunately, because of the government shutdown, the IRS may take a little longer getting that money to you.

We offer no hassle loans everyday. You don’t have to be a federal employee to get a loan at Parker Pawn & Jewelry.

Jewelry Trends at Parker Pawn & Jewelry

When Parker Pawn & Jewelry opened its doors in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 1955, our goal was to become the most trusted pawn shop in town, providing our customers with a safe place to sell their possessions and secure needed loans. Over 60 years later, Parker Pawn & Jewelry has grown to include four store locations and an online store as well. We sell a wide variety of products, including a sizable collection of jewelry.

Jewelry is a unique product to sell, as jewelry trends are ever-changing. What was in last season, may be out this season, only to return to wider popularity a couple of seasons from now. For the summer of 2018, some jewelry trends are colorful and bold. Earrings are big, with the most popular trend being long, feathered or whimsical. On the other hand, dainty necklaces are in, adorned with small flowers or simple geometric shapes. For men, nothing says masculine fashion better than a stylish watch, with a band made out of leather, stainless steel, titanium, gold and even wood. Of course, some jewelry will always remain classic as time goes by. A beautiful diamond ring, a gold necklace with a small photo in a locket, or a tennis bracelet laden with precious gemstones given as a gift always make for special moments.

Whatever the trends may be, if you are looking for high quality jewelry, Parker Pawn & Jewelry is the place to go. Our store inventory is always changing, and our jewelry selection is no exception.
