Taking an old cigar box and an old sweater, you can make a great ring holder that not only organizes your rings, it protects them as well. What you end up with is a ring display that looks a lot like what you see in the jewelry store, only a lot cheaper. This project is easy and only takes about an hour or so from start to finish. You end up with a place where you can slide your rings in to keep them from being lost or knocked around in the jewelry box. You could also use this to stick your stud earrings in and keep them from being misplaced.
If you have a few pieces of chicken wire on hand, you can create an absolutely stunning hanger for your earrings and other jewelry. You’ll need a one-by-two foot piece of chicken wire as well as a few pieces of wood to build the frame. The framed holder hangs with a piece of ribbon or whatever you want to use to hang it and it costs only about $2 to make. Plus, it’s relatively easy and will hold loads of jewelry. Add a few small nails or hooks to the wooden part for holding necklaces and bracelets and your earrings will just hang across the wire in the center.
A necklace holder can be as simple as a wooden board with some knobs on it. Actually that’s a pretty good description of the project showcased on asmithofalltrades. As you can probably anticipate, you don’t need many things if you want to make something similar. So go find yourself a board, stain it or paint it, drill two holes in two of its corners so you can hang it and screw in a few knobs. You can mix and match them however you want.
The framed jewelry organized featured on monaluna is both elegant and practical. Notice that it has a thin storage tray at the bottom.

If you want, you can use some sandpaper to create a distressed, vintage look.

I even cautiously tried the leftover solution on a costume jewellery pair of earrings (I DON’T recommend anyone else reading this to try this though as your jewellery could be very different quality to mine!) and it worked to remove the last bits of tarnish off the chain- already used baking soda on it before and most of it was shiny as new, but this last method completely removed everything else. My costume jewellery was made of very good metal and handiwork so the solution did not damage my jewellery. Thank you so much again for such invaluable tips and advice!
When your favorite bling just doesn't have the same sparkle, instead of purchasing expensive cleaning solutions or bucking out for a professional scrubbing, try this easy DIY jewelry cleaner. Using ingredients you already have in your pantry, this concoction costs pennies to make and doesn't use any harsh chemicals — just the power of science. And you can give your old toothbrush a new life by gently scrubbing jewels postsoak. Before you know it, your special gems will be dazzling.

You can’t use anything else instead of baking soda. None of the other ingredients are necessary either… It’s specifically the vinegar (acetic acid) and the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) that react and cause the reaction and hence the bubbles. The water actually inactivates both significantly and the salt (sodium chloride) is totally inert in the presence of the acid and base. As a matter of fact, when you combine the acetic acid and sodium bicarb, you get water and salt. The foil also does nothing…you can use any dish.

Over time, the pieces of jewelry that you frequently wear might begin to develop a grimy layer of dirt that can cause even the brightest of your gemstones look dull. To bring back the sparkle you can take your jewelry to a professional to clean it. However, this can take time and get rather expensive. A more convenient, and inexpensive way to clean your jewelry is to make a homemade jewelry cleaner and clean your pieces at home.

If the jewelry is very dirty or very tarnished – like silver or gold – then you may need to repeat the process so just add a little more baking soda and more boiling water – but make sure it’s boiling, that’s key!  You can also use a toothbrush to get in all the nooks and crannies of detailed jewelry. Be careful with precious gems, stones and metals.
