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.

Whether you’re a DIY maven or a design-obsessed fashionista, there’s a good chance that you’ve spotted the druzy trend. Never heard of the term before?

Mix up some glitter, add a little decoupage, and follow this tutorial for a pair of faux druzy earrings.


I have a great jewelry polish that is super simple. Take a small piece of aluminum foil, about 1″ square, and put it in the bottom of a coffee cup. Add about a T of baking soda. Pour boiling water over it and dunk your jewelry. You can drop it in and swirl it around, or you can just dunk it a few times and it cleans any tarnish off in seconds. I like to put a twist tie or string on the jewelry and then just dunk it. When I pull it out, sometimes there are some little dark spots. I just rub them out with my finger. This works well on tarnished silver dishes or tableware as well.

A cheese grater is the perfect earring holder. Now, we’re talking about those full, standup graters that you can buy just about anywhere if you don’t already have one that you can use.

I used the aluminum foil method many times for years. The first time that I tried it, I was SO amazed with the results, as I had some silver jewelry that I’d neglected for quite some time. It didn’t even appear to be “silver”. For the reason that I usually clean numerous pieces at one time, I tear the aluminum foil up into little pieces so each piece of jewelry will be in contact with the foil. I add very hot water, baking soda, and a few drops of dish detergent). I place in a bowl with a well sealing lid and shake gently for about 30 seconds, then let soak for 10-15 minutes. Using a soft bristle brush and the liquid, I gently scrub the jewelry. Last, I rinse and buff dry.

Witch hazel is slightly acidic, and vinegar much more so, but either will work for soaking your jewelry. This cleaning method is intended for jewelry with sturdy stone settings (I wouldn’t use it for opals, pearls, or tanzanite, for example), and that is especially important to keep in mind if you’re using vinegar. Witch hazel is certainly the milder of the two, so use whichever ingredient you feel comfortable with.

Ladies: I see a lot of you saying it didn’t work for you. I wonder if you’re trying to clean PLATED silver jewelry or silver-TONE jewelry? If it’s not actual silver (usually denoted by the piece being stamped somewhere in the metal with “.998”) your problem may be that your jewelry finish is wearing off, instead of it just being tarnished. Think of it as trying to clean a stain off a painted wall vs “cleaning” a section of that wall where the paint has been peeled off. You can’t wash paint back onto the wall if it’s peeled off, you have to repaint it. In the case of plated or silver toned jewelry, you’ll need that jewelry to be re-dipped into a silver plate or coating to restore its luster.
