Cuff-Links Revived

I placed the nine carat gold cuff-links in a thimbleful of pure ammonia - what a pungent pong! - and let them stew therein for awhile. They seem to date from 1923.

The ammonia is so powerful - even abrasive - that it has removed all vestiges of grease and grime, mostly from the tiny links.

They are now in fine condition.
