Stella & Dot Rhinestone Earrings {Knock-off} ~ Diamonds are a girls best friend, right?!  We never said that they had to be the real mccoy.  These rhinestone earrings are amazing.  Two different sized rhinestone chains and different lengths of link chain were used for added dimension.  9.  DIY Fringe Earrings ~  Who would have thought that using fringe for earrings could look so beautiful?!  Genius, right?!  Alison designed these lovelies said that you can buy the fringe in an array of colors at the fabric store, or you can dye white fringe to your desired shade.

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.
Embellished Resin Rings ~ These rings are similar to the resin rings I featured above but with a bit more bling and sophistication! I think I’d better go out and buy some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic stat.  I am in LOVE with these rings!  25.  Resin Ring Tutorial ~  This resin ring is a bit different in that it uses photos or photo paper for the design on the ring.  I love the idea of a photo ring!  26.  Fork Ring Jewelry Tutorial ~ There are so many fun uses for this great tutorial.  You could use this as a craft activity for a class or youth group.  Or you could also make a sentimental gift for a new bride or parent having an anniversary using one of their wedding silverware. 27.  DIY Girl’s Flower Ring ~ This craft is easy enough the kids could make one too!  Just get  your hands on some cute buttons, and turn them into these fun rings, with the band made from a stretchy headband.  I think this would be an especially cute gift for a young teen.

I tried this and it worked great for some of my pieces (all are 925 silver from Tiffany) but one of my necklaces actually turned darker. Tried the solution two more times and left it to soak, tried to use a polishing cloth after the solution under running water and no change. So bizarre because it worked like magic on all my other silver. Thoughts?
An old wooden coat hanger can be transformed into the perfect jewelry organizer with a few small hooks and maybe some decorative ribbon. First, decorate the hanger however you want, if you want. Then add tiny command hooks for holding necklaces and bracelets. You can stick the hooks into the wood all the way around the hanger and even on both sides if you want. You get loads of space for hanging your jewelry and a wooden hanger will cost only a few cents at thrift stores so this is a really cheap project as well.
Read Before You Start!: Gather your ingredients and line your pan with a sheet of foil (shiny side up). Lay out your dirty jewelry and have each part of the jewelry touch the foil. Not sure why this is important, but apparently it is. (Note: I cleaned my silver, 14k white gold and even a diamond ring without any problems. I don’t recommend using this cleaner on stones like opals and pearls. Not sure what the reaction would be to these types of natural stones.)
This is amazing! I have few silver necklaces and bracelets that I really like and I have for many years. They have became very dark with time and I didn’t even try to clean them yet! Now that I see this post I think that it is about time to clean my silver jewelry! I know that baking soda has great cleaning abilities so I am sure that the result will be really nice! Thanks for sharing! Greetings!
How about a necklace holder that has industrial flair? You could easily make one out of some copper pipe pieces and some copper end caps and fitting adapters. You’ll also need a piece of wood to use as a support for the whole thing. You can mix and match the pipes and fittings however you want so be creative and give it an interesting, geometric structure. Check out ehow for more details.
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.
