  1. I have no problem with diamonds set in sterling as long as the price is right. Haven't had any issues with any of my sterling silver ever.
     
  2. I don't mind it at all. I have a Tiffany's sterling silver DBTY and it has held up nicely.
     
  3. Very pretty! I have a few Movado pieces that are silver w real diamonds. They are now 10 years old and probably would have preferred WG since it would always look shiny without cleaning them.

  4. I know this is an old thread but I thought it might be a good place to ask my question.
    I have a micro pave diamond bangle set in silver. (bought secondhand ages ago). Recently dug it out from a jewelry box, not seen the light of day in quite a while, but I really like it. I notice some of the diamonds look quite dark (some are still lovely and white). I tried to clean it with cleaner, then used the tin foil & baking soda trick. The bracelet is indeed very shiny & bright but still some of the diamonds are dark :sad:. I assume it’s tarnish that has gotten under the diamonds that is hard to remove. Any advice for me?
     
  5. Can you take it to a jeweler? They can do wonders.
     
  6. Yes I will likely have to resort to getting a professional cleaning.
     
  7. Just an update in case anyone’s interested. I used the tin foil/baking soda/ boiling water method a few more times on my bangle and it’s way way better. I guess there is a drawback to setting diamonds in silver tho, cuz if it were set in white gold, there would not be this issue.
