Does anyone know if its safe to wear my white gold jewellery while swimming :?

Im stumped, i know you cant take silver in as it goes black LOL! but i wear white gold, am and wondering if theyll come out the same way they went in.

Dont really want to leave my jewellery in the changing room as my chain is quite valuable.

Thanks in advance.

can't you just clean it after if it does go off-colour?
I have only ever had silver go black when it was in a volcanic (and so sulphur) pool in NZ.

Care
Gold can be cleaned in a solution of soap and water or with jewellery cleaning compounds. A lint cloth is suggested as even a soft-bristled brush may cause scratching on high karat (softer) pieces of jewellery.

Chlorine can cause gold to dissolve or become scarred. As such gold jewellery should be removed before swimming or coming into contact with most household cleaning agents.

All jewellery should be stored in fabric-lined box or individual cloth bag to prevent chipping and scratching against other pieces.

If you can't leave it at home, don't go swimming. You will get nothing like the value of it, if it is stolen from the lockers. Anyway just wear it, it's gold not silver and for jumping into a pool once a year it can't do it much harm. :whistling:
