Hello again, after my long hiatus.
Here’s a question for you old-time jewelers. I have a client for whom
most of my work is repairing very old clip earrings and putting old
necklaces back together. Not much money, but I really like her, and
since she’s 97, I won’t get to work with her much longer. She has
asked if I know about a product she used to use to renew the shine on
her opals. It was a powder or paste that she rubbed on her fingers,
then just rubbed the opals until they were shiny. Does this ring
bells for anyone? If you know the name of the product and if it is
still available, I’d love to be able to pass it on to her. Thanks.
