How to Revive Costume Jewelry
Inevitably, plated costume jewelry will lose its luster over time. Instead of accepting this fate, you can revive almost any metal with a crafting favorite - Rub'n Buff! This product comes in a variety of metallic finishes that you can match to your jewelry. It is a wax-based paint mixed with fine metallic powders that you use just as the name implies. Simply apply a small amount to an old rag, rub all over the metal, and keep buffing until it shines. Of course, you can expect this new finish to eventually rub away with time, but you can keep renewing with another application.
