the ultimate jewelry cleaner

The Ultimate Jewelry Cleaner.

I work with a lot of jewelry in my multi-media art and am in constant search for broken, mis-matched earrings, etc. I buy in bulk when I can get a good deal.

Sterling silver will likely tarnish. and really you should use caution with any of your expensive jewelry.
