Beware of the pool and especially the hot tub!
Chlorine and bleaches can cause damage to gold. Both cause a chemical reaction that disintegrates the alloys in the jewelry over time. (Nearly all gold jewelry is alloyed since pure gold is to soft on its own; i.e.14 karat gold, white or yellow, is 59.5% gold and the other 41.5% are alloys like nickel, copper and silver.) So beware of pools and cleaners containing bleach - TAKE OFF THAT JEWELRY!
