Four more pair of costume earring jewelry. A few more posts and I'll back off from this type photos. It's just the more I look at all of this I have and after I clean it, I'm beginning to like it.

    I'm glad you are starting to see the beauty in costume. Some of the greatest designers that worked for the finest jewelers moved to creating costume. If you have rhinestone pieces, when you clean them make sure not to get liquid behind the stones mount. It removes the foil and destroys the look. You may have already known that but just in case:)

    Yes. point well taken. I've been a coin collector for many years and know how quickly a piece can be utterly destroyed by doing something that one thought was a "good thing". Q-tips and artist paintbrushes and sometimes a very soft bristle used toothbrush with nothing more than plain distilled H2O as a solvent. Generally all that has been on them is what I believe to be old built up face powder which comes off with very little effort. Rest assured your babies (or mine lol) are being well cared for.
