Removing Hair From a Gold Chain

I wear a gold chain around my neck all the time and it often gets a lot of hair in it. Anyone know an easier way to get the hair out than trying to pick/pull it out with my fingers? Thanks in advance.

Use tweezers.

Is it the chain clasp (the kind you pinch to open) your hair is getting stuck in? If so just have a jeweler replace the clasp with a 'barrel clasp' and you'll have no more problems ;-)

I hold mine over a flame for 2 seconds.

BE CAREFUL with the match method. I had the same problem with hair in my 14 carat gold chain. I used the match method and it burned my chain in HALF. Don't try it!!!

I use a small pair of scissors and/or a straight pin to carefully remove the hair tangle.

Use the flame of a lighter or candle for one or two seconds and then wipe it down with a soft cloth. If it's sooty, a little toothpaste rubbed on and then rinsed with water will shine it up. Good luck.
