I'm afraid to dip it in silver cleaner or any other solvents because I don't know what's keeping the stone in the setting (some sort of adhesive, I imagine?). A toothbrush dipped in water isn't getting in the crevices, and I worry I'll end up rusting out the back.
The grime on it is from normal wear but it's accumulating quickly because I wear it every single day. I want to preserve this necklace as long as possible because it has tremendous sentimental value.
