    Does this work with custom jewelry as well? Or will it damage it???

    My husband was just telling me how grubby I was letting my wedding ring get. I never take it off, not even when showering. The result is that the stones are always dull and the prongs get “gunky” that I can never seem to get clean, even with commercial jewelry cleaner and an old toothbrush. I immediately tried this and it worked like a charm!
