Hey all.

I have silver pendants and chain (not real silver but plated) and I dont like how shiny it is and want to dirty it up. Any idea how?


I blame it on the bunny....

Anything containing sulphur, sealed in a ziploc bag with your jewellery, will oxidize it. I recommend hardboiled egg yolks.

if it's plated with silver I think you can paint it with bleach or liver of sulphur with a q-tip.  Wait until desired darkness and rinse with water.
