I've been using Connoisseurs silver polishing cloth for many years now as suggested by my jeweler and found that it brought back the shine on my silver jewelry. (btw they also have for gold). They have dips too but it was just to messy & smelly for me. Checked it out at Amazon & it is available for just $6.74. Good deal for something that really works
i was skeptical...but it worked! woohoo, now all my jewelry is so shiney and new
somebody posted this earlier in a different thread (that's where i got the tip from) but i'll just mention it again
line a bowl or container with aluminum foil shiney side up. put boiling water in and a spoonful of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and then dip your jewelry in for 2 mins... i didn't let it sit there too long. then rinse in purified water...i just used tap. and TA DA! shiney maddness!!!!
Well, I'm happy for now because my jewelry is looking good as a result of the cloth, but I will send it to Tiffany's when I pass by there.
Do their cleanings remove some of the scratches? Or at least hides their appearance a little?
And does anyone know how much it costs?? When I bought it, I think they said $30, but ducky got hers free...so?
Yes, it totally hides any scratches... my stuff comes back looking brand new. I don't remember the fees, but it might be $30 for three pieces, not for one though. I've always had to pay and never gotten mine for free... to me it is worth it for how amazing it all looks when it comes back though!
Tiffany also sells a cleaning cloth. I bought it and used it on my Tiffany pieces and it works wonders! I totally suggest the cleaning cloth instead of paying Tiffanys to clean it for you because it's the same thing (at least to me).
Tiffanys charges you to have them clean your pieces unless you have a nice SA
