GOLD JEWELRY IN THE HOT TUB?

A recent “Dear Heloise” column from the Washington Post reminded me of an experience I had in a vacation condo rental in Whistler, BC.

When I got out of the hot tub at the condo, my gold rings were a dark green! The water chemistry was way off! I knew better. The water felt caustic to the touch. I never wear my gold rings in a swimming pool. The chlorine can turn them an off-color and is probably stripping a layer of gold. But, I’ve never had an issue with my rings in my own hot tub so wasn’t thinking about improper water chemistry in someone else’s hot tub.  Now that we use SilkBalance exclusively the water is kind to my skin and my rings don’t suffer either.

A writer to Heloise said she had read somewhere that wearing gold jewelry in a chlorinated hot tub or swimming pool was not a good idea.  “Yes, it’s true!” replied Heloise. ” Chlorine has a harmful effect on gold and may, over time, even cause it to become brittle and break. Remember to remove your jewelry, especially if it is gold or silver, before going into a chlorinated pool or hot tub.”

If soaking in a vat of chemicals isn’t good for your gold jewelry, imagine what it will do to your skin!
