be careful with the white gold, most of it is plated with rhodium (a metal in the platinum family); white gold itself is dull, and this is done to make it shiny. I had a jeweller in the family, and got my original wedding band from him, many years ago. When he asked if I wanted it plated, I said no. I’m sure my face was a treat when I first saw it; it was immediately plated! This method of cleaning might remove the plating eventually. I’d check with a jeweller before doing it too often.

i work in precious metals so i have used rubbing alcohol, just put gold or silver in a jar, with the rubbing alcohol and wait overnight. there should be a drastic difference in shine and clarity. it does work for all types of jewelry and precious metals except for pearls and rhodium. definitely do not use this stuff on rhodium. it may cause an explosion, just maybe with rhodium.
I just tried this on my Tiffany’s heart and ball chain and realized after I started boiling the water I was out of baking soda…put the vigenar and salt in the boiling water anyways and poured into the pan. Wosrt thing that I figured could happen would be it wouldn’t work and I wasted a little vinegar and water..as i pourd the steaming hot liquid into the pan I WATCHED it get cleaned instantly. This works without the baking soda! I wished I had taken a video of it! Coolest thing to see happen! Thank you!

You can literally make one of these in about five minutes and if you have the hoop and lace on hand, it won’t cost you anything. You could also use strips of fabric if that’s what you have.
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.
