i have a floating heart necklace from hot diamonds in sterling silver. it’s plated rhodium and is starting to scratch and not be as shiny as it was when it was new.
any ideas for cleaning/polishing it?
i already tried sterling silver jewelry cleaner and it didn’t do much.
i forgot to mention that i have tried toothpaste and didn’t notice a difference. i’ve heard about baking soda. does it work?
I was cleaning house the other day - a spring cleaning so to speak… and found all this old jewelry that I haven’t worn in years.. you know that show on tv - finding treasure in your attic… that’s how I felt… now the question is what do I do with it… I have a few watches, gold & silver earrings, chains, rings & pendants…some of it is broken… will they buy that? Help me turn my find into cash.

Ok now by trial and error I know this was a dumb idea but I tried to clean my favorite silver pendant with hydgrogen peroxide because it worked on my other jewelry and now the half of the pendant that touched the liquid in the bottlecap is darkened. Is there a way to fix this?

I would like to know if its safe to clean my sterling silver and cz ring in the connoisseurs silver jewelry cleaner with out damaging the stones. I haven’t been able to find much info on the web about cleaning them together but have found info on cleaning just silver or cz separately but not together.
its got black stuff all over it, what cleaning product would be best to clean my silver jewelry with it? and how can i tell if something is silver or sterling silver. i did not buy this jewelry myself.
I have some sterling silver jewelry that is starting to darken and am just wondering if there is a way to clean the jewelry just using regular household goods.
I have read that to clean silver jewelry I need a cloth and liquid polish. Where do I get that stuff? I can’t afford anything expensive.
Any other tips / suggestions are welcome!

My grandmother gave me a pair of antique diamond earrings. The silver is kind of tarnished, and because of that I think the diamond doesn’t sparkle as much as it normally would, but it might be a little dirty too. How would I clean the diamond with out hurting or damaging the silver? Or vise versa?
And I’d rather use household items instead of running to the store.
How do you clean silver jewelry w/o buying a fancy jewelry cleaning unit? I need to get rid of the tarnish.
I live overseas and can’t find silver/jewelry cleaner…is there something around the house you can use instead? Thanks.
I make jewelry, and sometimes I use tourmaline, moonstone, labradorite, etc. I know about the baking soda/salt/foil method. I know about store brand specifics, polish impregnated cloths, toothpaste, soapy water, vinegar, etc. I don’t want to take apart tourmaline, or pearl jewelry just to clean the little silver components in between.
