Whether it’s jewellery you wear every day or family heirlooms sitting in your jewellery box, it’s all going to need a good clean at some point. You can buy ready-made jewellery cleaning products but they are full of harsh chemicals and often make your jewellery tarnish more quickly – so you need to use it more and buy more product.

You can spend less money and buy costume jewellery but it will always work out better for cost per wear to buy the real thing. Always buy real pearls, silver or gold if you can. I don’t suggest spending all your money on a trendy solid gold lobster pendant because it’s on the cover of Vogue, buy jewellery that will last forever and look good for seasons on end.
