Can You Wear White Gold In The Shower?

Hello, Luvari family! Welcome back to our blog where we're always celebrating all things jewelry! Today, we're tackling a question we get asked frequently - Can you wear white gold in the shower?

We're sure you love your white gold pieces just as much as we loved creating them for you. White gold is a stunning, versatile metal that brings out the radiance in every jewel. But, how do you best care for these beloved pieces? Let's dive in!

Understanding White Gold

So, what exactly is white gold? This beautiful metal is a blend of pure gold and other white metals, such as silver or palladium. Just like its yellow gold sibling, white gold comes in different karats—typically 10, 14, or 18—representing the purity of the gold.

At Luvari, all our white gold pieces, whether made-to-order or fully customized from scratch, are expertly crafted with this blend to maximize both beauty and durability.

The Effect of Water and Soap on White Gold

It's shower time, and you're about to step in. But wait, should you take off your white gold ring or bracelet?

Here's the deal: Water itself won't harm your white gold. However, the soap and other products you use can impact it over time. Soaps can leave a dull film on your jewelry, diminishing its beautiful shine, and hot water or steam may weaken any gemstone settings.

Impact of Shower Products on White Gold

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash - you name it! Most shower products contain chemicals that can potentially damage your white gold over time. This can be through creating a filmy layer on your jewelry or causing slight discoloration.

Even some beauty products used in the shower, like hair dyes, can have adverse reactions with your jewelry. Therefore, it's safer to remove your white gold pieces before stepping in.

Long-term Consequences of Wearing White Gold in the Shower

Consistent exposure to water, soap, and beauty products can lead to a gradual degradation of your white gold pieces. Over time, these elements can wear down the rhodium plating, leaving your jewelry less shiny and more prone to scratches. If your piece has a diamond or any other gemstone, water and soap may weaken the setting, potentially causing your precious stone to loosen.

Proper Care and Maintenance for White Gold

At Luvari, we want you to enjoy your pieces for a lifetime. So, when should you wear your white gold? Anytime, anywhere - except in the shower! It's always a good idea to remove your jewelry before bathing to keep it looking as beautiful as the day you first wore it.

For cleaning, simply use a gentle jewelry cleaner and a soft cloth. If your white gold needs a little extra care, don't hesitate to reach out to our complimentary Luvari Jewelry Concierge team. They're ready to guide you through every step of your jewelry maintenance journey.

Alternative Options for Shower-Safe Jewelry

Are you a constant jewelry wearer and can't bear the thought of going jewelry-free in the shower? Don't worry! There are other jewelry options that can weather the shower, like certain types of stainless steel or high-quality silicone pieces.

However, please remember that even shower-safe jewelry still needs regular cleaning and care to maintain its brilliance.

Wrap It Up!

So there you have it, folks! To keep your white gold looking bright and beautiful, it's best to slip it off before stepping into the shower. By following these simple steps, you can ensure your Luvari pieces continue to celebrate your life's beautiful moments for years to come.
