Our 23K gold pieces require little maintenance and can withstand the outdoor weather conditions when cared for correctly. A few things to keep in mind as you handle your piece.....
- Gold leaf finish can scratch very easily. It is best to handle pieces carefully from the sides and back until they are hung
- Cleaning is not necessary, however if done, it should only be with water and a soft cloth -- no detergents
- Fins and whiskers can be very fragile, avoid applying pressure to these areas on your pieces
Please note, white gold pieces are all gilded in 12K gold and are intended for indoor use only. 12K gold leaf can discolor over time in outdoor conditions, therefore, we recommend that these pieces be placed indoors. We cannot guarantee the finish of a piece will remain intact if it is placed outside.
