Just this month we featured you two diamond watches from Audemars Piguet called Coup de Theater and the Carnet de Bal. The watch shown above is another Audemars Piguet creation that shows once again his creativity and the complexity of setting diamonds in a watch.

Just like his first two diamond watches, this watch is also made with a very complicated design and style which highlights this watch. This watch required lots of hours to create and the outcome is indeed very overwhelming. This watch has a white gold case that is surrounded by diamonds. It sets the attention to the dial which is crafted from mother of the pearl which is embellished various sizes of diamonds. This watch is accented by the blue hour and minute hands which also complements the luxuriousness of this timepiece.

How To Clean Silver Jewelry

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Put small sheet of aluminum foil lining the bowl, pour some baking soda into a bowl and boiling water and dissolve the baking soda into it.

Submerge the silver jewelry in the hot water for about 5 to 10 minutes, but it shouldn’t be long before you start to see tiny yellow or black flakes in the water or the aluminum foil turning black. What’s happening is that the hot solution of baking soda and water is separating the sulfur from the silver and transferring it to the aluminum. This easy homemade tarnish remover takes advantage of the fact that sulfur is more chemically attracted to aluminum than silver.

Using a soft wet cloth, scrub the silver free of tarnish with more baking soda.

Just be gentle, so as not to scratch the silver. Once the silver is clean, you should rinse it in clean water to remove any traces of baking soda, then dry it with a soft clean cloth. You may find that you can take off even more tarnish by rubbing at any remaining dark spots with the cloth.

Most silversmiths, jewelers, and collectors discourage this method because baking soda is abrasive and can leave tiny scratches on the surface of silver. But if you have a piece that’s heavily tarnished and doesn’t have a lot of monetary or sentimental value, this is a good option.

If your silver is severely tarnished, you may have to repeat the process several times.
