{Review} Mini Tiffany & Co Collection

{Warning~ this post is quite long lol}

This is a collection of Tiffany & Co silver jewellery that I've accumulated in the past year. I absolutely love every single piece, and wear them almost everyday. All these were gifted by my lovely boyfriend for separate occasions (thank you Wayne!! ^^<3), and we chose the pieces together.

The packaging is so beautiful~ i keep all the bags, ribbons, and boxes :D.

This was the first Tiffany & Co anything that i owned. It's such a beautiful necklace, so simple and dainty, and it goes with literally anything. I'd say i wore this every single day for over half a year. There were two chain lengths to choose from - 16 or 18 inch. I went for the 16inch because I liked how it stopped just under my collar bone.

I love this bracelet so much~ and I wear it everyday. This is Tiffany & Co's most popular piece, and I totally understand why. Once again, it goes with everything, and it looks so lovely on the wrist! The size of the pendant and the positioning on the bracelet is so perfect, so it dangles in the right place? Haha.

Sizing wise, i got the medium which is the smallest. I have to wear the bracelet a few links in for it to fit properly. At the store they gave me the option to get it properly adjusted, meaning they take off the extra links. However, because they would needed to send the bracelet away to do that, it would take 3 weeks, and I didn't want to wait that long so I just kept it the way it is :D.

I wear this bracelet along with my watch which is made of stainless steel, which has caused quite a lot of scratches on the pendant (because it's quite big, when i move my wrist around, the pendant swings back and forth hitting my watch). I'm able to remove the tarnish from the silver, but unfortunately even the people at the store said there's no way to remove the scratches. Nevertheless, this bracelet is still my favourite piece of jewellery ever ^^.

These earrings are so adorable! Just like the above necklace and bracelet, they're so simple and go with everything! I don't wear these everyday though, because i think wearing them along with the necklace is too matchy matchy haha. The detail on the backings is really cute~ they're flowers :). Not sure what else to say about them, other than they're like the perfect studs :).

Tiffany 1837™ Ring (Size 6.5) $205
Going to the store, I was planning to purchase this ring, because I thought it looked like a simple everyday ring, but with a cool twist. However, when I tried it on the ring felt really light which I thought felt a bit cheap and not worth the price tag. When trying on the 1837 ring (the one purchased), it felt so much more sturdy, and it had a good weight to it. I got size 6.5, and it fits on both my middle and index finger. Perfect everyday ring :).

This tiny hint of Tiffany blue is a gorgeous little detail to your arm candy. When i looked up this bracelet online, i thought it was simply a beaded bracelet, however when I held it in-store, I realised that there's actually a chain inside the beads! For me, it takes a while to put on this bracelet, because the clasp is quite small, and also because the beads sometimes become twisted(?) which makes it difficult for them to wrap around my wrist properly. I still love it very much, and wear it everyday :).

Sizing wise - even though my wrists are quite thin, this bracelet is not too loose, I think it's a perfect size (see few pics above).

I would say that every one of these pieces is a must have because i love them so much haha > <. But if you don't own any Tiffany & Co jewellery, and are looking to purchase your first one, I highly recommend the 'heart tag charm bracelet' or the 'heart tag pendant necklace'. I guarantee you'll wear them everyday :D

Lastly, there are two important products that I use to keep all this silver shiny and polished. Tiffany silver tarnishes very easily. I didn't realise this until my second time at the store, where I was wearing the necklace and the sales assistant serving us pointed out how tarnished it was. She wiped over my necklace on the spot with a polishing cloth, and holy crap there was a huge difference! So I purchased the 'silver polishing cloth' for $10 (IT'S HUGE!), and use it at least once a week. Sometimes they give you a complimentary polishing cloth (much smaller) with purchase. As you clean your jewellery, it will leave dark stains on the cloth, you'll know it's clean when there's nothing coming off.

After about half a year, i noticed some black marks (not sure what it was, maybe hardcore tarnish? o.O lol)on my necklace which the cloth could not remove. The sales assistant recommended purchasing the silver polish which is also $10 and it worked like a charm :D. The polish is pink and smells pretty bad, you pour it on a cotton pad (not the polishing cloth!) and wipe the jewellery until it's clean.

Thank you for reading! :)
