Restoring a Tarnished Gold Bracelet

I had a lovely Alex and Ani bracelet that tarnished. It was easy and quick to make it look like new.

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Cover the bracelet with ketchup. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse ketchup off. The bracelet will look a lot better.
  3. Put a drop of blue Dawn in a bowl of water. Use a toothbrush to wash the bracelet. (Note: some people said they wore off the finish because the rubbed too hard, so I just used my hands.)

  5. Rinse and dry off.

If it truly was Gold it wouldn't have tarnished in the first place. Look for a mark on the inside that says "14k or 10k".

It probably was brass as suggested in another comment. Ketchup is also a good brightener for copper-bottomed pots and pans.

Alex and Ani is not a maker of fine jewelry. All the gold and silver is plated.
