Has your old jewelry lost its shine?  Here’s the fix:  Combine 1/4 cup cold water and 1/4 cup ammonia.  Let the diamonds (don’t use on colored gems) soak for 30 minutes before brushing them using a soft-bristle toothbrush to scrub away the grime.  The ammonium hydroxide in the solution loosens the oils that build up on jewels, so they’ll shine like they did when you first had them.
