If your jewelry gets tarnished, do not worry, it can be shined easily! If it is heavily tarnished or fine chain is tarnished, I would suggest using the dip cleaner first. Simply dip the piece in the jewelry cleaning solution then rinse and allow to dry to remove tarnish. Avoid dipping pearls and or stones in the solution. Then I would suggest using the buffing the piece with the polishing cloth to bring back luster.
