Will water loosen stones?


#1

I’ve been using the washing soda method for cleaning Native American
silver jewelry but have been hesitant to use it on items with stone
settings. I know some stones are set over sawdust or other materials
and I’m wondering how much risk there is of this backing getting
saturated and loosening the stones when soaked in the cleaning
solution. Your thoughts?
