Be very cautious in using this recipe to clean silver jewelry that has oxidized crevices. The chemical reaction of the ingredients which removes ugly tarnish from silver also removes the intentional oxidation from decorative crevices, making dimensional designs look flat. I used this recipe to clean some James Avery charms, and then had to pay to have them oxidized once again.
I had everything BUT the foil. Tried it anyway...my wedding/engagement rings were soooooo dirty. They look FANTASTIC now. I will never buy the jewelry cleaner again. I am sure there must be some toxic ingredient in it. This is way better for the enviroment.
Another 5 star rating. This worked like a charm and I can't believe how well it works. My rings are cleaner than they've been since I first got them. Had to run and grab DH's so he could see how great it works. I'll never buy store bought again.
HIGHLY recommend this superior jewelry cleaner! Never waste another dime on silver polish!! Works great on EVERYTHING from sterling to diamonds!! I was very surprised to see how well it worked!!
Just tried this and it works wonders. My diamond sets up high and it is always hard to clean under it, but this does the trick! My rings look brand new!!!
Absolutely the best jewelry cleaner I have ever used! I always hated to clean jewelry, especially diamond earrings encased in hairspray Ã–, but this cleaning formula makes it super easy and the shine is incredible! Thanks a million times over!!
I wasn't sure this was going to work, especially since the bottom of my bowl looked like wet cotton (I think I was supposed to mix better) but my rings look amazing! They looked like pewter before (they're white gold) but now they shine! Definite winner!
Wow! My jewelry was sparkling after a 20 minute soak! Amazing!
This worked great for my sterling silver and silver plated jewelry, but it made all my copper stuff turn black.
Oh my! Although someone has posted that they have cleaned pearls and Emeralds with this and had success, they are VERY lucky! <br/>Never, ever, clean Emeralds, even with just water, they are oiled to keep them from crazing and other damage, water will remove this protective oil. Some are also heat treated to enhance the colour and this will fade the colour back to natural pale green. Take them to a jeweller and have the stone removed and the setting cleaned if necessary.<br/>As for Pearls, Opals, Coral, or other organic stones, like Lapis Lazuli and shells, etc. These also do not like to be subjected to water (I know...pearls come from water) it can cause them to dry and crack also. Opals, Ammonites and some shells are sandwiched between clear layers of crystal to protect the stone (called doublets & triplets) however, this sealing process can fail and/or the crystal itself will cloud. <br/>Any stone that is glued in place should also not be used in this solution. Nor should you put enamelled pieces in it.<br/>Great for plain silver though :)
