Introduction: Revamp Old Jewelry

Super easy how to revamp your jewelry!


I love wearing accessories. But because they're not gold or silver so over the time they get discolored.

This is one way to revamp old discolored jewelry so you can wear them again.

Here I use my old stud earrings, but you can apply this on anything, even use few different colors.

Be creative!

Step 1: What You Need

1. Your old jewelry

2. Something to stick your jewelry into -- here I use rubber eraser for my stud earrings

3. Nail polish, any color

4. Top coat or clear nail polish. Optional, if you don't have it's ok.

Step 2: Stick It!

Put the earring on the rubber eraser

Step 3: Paint It!

Time to use the nail polish

Now my stud earrings looks like a mini disco ball :)

Step 4: Glaze It!

Can't really tell the difference before and after the top coat/clear nail polish application, but this makes the nail color last longer.

Let it dry and they're ready to wear again!

Step 5: Taaadaaa!


Like "new" again :)

This is a good idea. It helps keep waste out of landfills too!

Two notes of caution though: 1. don't paint real silver or gold like this. It can ruin the value of the jewelry. 2. Be careful what paint you use, since it can react with the metal (and you!).

To clean silver jewelry I use toothpaste. Just use it like brushing your teeth and the silvery color will shine again.

A tips from a friend of mine, she have sensitive skin so cannot wear fake/fashion earrings too long. She use the clear nail polish on the part that goes to her ears, that way she won't get any rash or itches from the earrings.
