The Ultrasonic Gem Saver, an insert that helps eliminate the problem of retrieving gems dislodged from their mountings during ultrasonic cleaning, fits most standard ultrasonic cleaning tanks. A fine mesh on the bottom of the soft-coated unit captures gems so jewelers need not search or drain the tank to search for gems; it also prevents jewelry items that slip off the racks from being scratched by the stainless-steel tank.
