You need to compare the internal diameter.

Gold is a precious metal. This means that it almost does not oxidize in the air, does not rust and has a rich Shine.
However, the composition of the gold jewelry alloy includes other components — alloying additives with a lower level of chemical resistance.
Because of them, the decoration may become stained, dull or cloudy. Only regular care will help save it.

Gold is a precious metal. This means that it almost does not oxidize in the air, does not rust and has a rich Shine.
However, the composition of the gold jewelry alloy includes other components — alloying additives with a lower level of chemical resistance.
Because of them, the decoration may be covered with spots, fade or become cloudy. Only regular care will help save it.

Why is this important?
Gold jewelry alloy reacts:
with oxygen, hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide contained in the surrounding air;
with moisture or water that gets on rings and bracelets during hand washing;
with cosmetics, perfumes, household chemicals.
As a result of a chemical reaction, gold becomes greenish, grayish or brown, and is covered with ugly spots. In addition, during wear, microcracks may form on the surface of the product, accumulating dust and dirt. They "eat" the Shine of the precious metal.

Daily care
The main enemy of gold jewelry is iodine. Do not allow it to get on the product even in a slightly concentrated form. Iodine destroys the surface of the decoration, and it will be impossible to remove the resulting stain. For this reason, you need to remove gold products before visiting the pool or swimming in the sea.

Acts in the same way mercury and chlorine. The danger also lies in the fact that these substances can be found in small amounts in the composition of medicines, cleaning products, cosmetics. In conditions of high humidity and when heated, their effect is enhanced.

5 rules will help you save the appearance of a gold product:

Wear jewelry alternately — even your favorite earrings need to be removed from time to time. After each wear, you need to wipe the product with a soft flannel or a special jewelry napkin.
Remove rings and bracelets before cleaning the house. All products — before sports training, taking a shower or bath, swimming in an open pond or pool.
To avoid sudden changes in temperature. It is advisable not to wear gold jewelry on the ice rink or in the sauna.
Wear jewelry after the hand cream or perfume is absorbed. Start hygiene procedures only after the jewelry is removed.
Follow the General rules for storing jewelry: protect from direct sunlight, dust and mechanical damage.

If gold jewelry uses inserts made of stones, it is important to take into account the characteristics of a particular stone: some of them need special care.

Cleaning: home and professional
It is easy to remove ordinary dirt from the metal surface — just rinse the decoration in a soap solution. You can add 5-10 drops of ammonia to it to enhance the Shine. The product is dipped in the solution: if the contamination is weak, then immediately wipe with a napkin. To remove stubborn stains, the decoration is left in the bath for several hours, then rinsed with clean water and wiped dry.

Folk methods of cleaning — onions, soda, toothpaste — should be used carefully. They can leave micro-scratches on the surface of the product, and in the future the gold will be contaminated faster. The remnants of a homemade cleaning compound are difficult to remove completely — so you may have to wear jewelry with pieces of onion mixture.

The best cleaning option is professional. It is selected in a jewelry workshop, taking into account the nature of contamination and the characteristics of a particular jewelry.
In one case, ultrasonic washing will be enough, in the other — you will need a complex of polishing, washing and applying a decorative coating.
