Having a beautiful set of high-quality jewelry is a source of pride and joy. Your jewelry will have both sentimental value and exquisite elegance for you. Your engagement ring, your silver heart necklace given by your husband, and the heart jewellery you gave to yourself for your birthday have a special meaning for you.
It is important to store your valuable jewelry correctly if you want it to remain secure and in good condition for several years. Jewelry that is not properly stored may become damaged or lost over time. It's also crucial to keep an eye on your jewelry because thieves are just everywhere.
The following guide will teach you how to keep your jewelry safe and protected so that it can bring you and your family joy for generations to come.
Separate Jewelry By Metal
Make an inventory of your jewelry first. This is an important step so you can separate your fine jewelry, costume jewelry, and silver jewelry into a few piles. Costume jewelry should not go together with silver and fine jewelry, and silver jewelry should not be stored with fine jewelry. As metals communicate with one another, this separation helps avoid tarnishing.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures and Humidity
Keep your jewelry out of a drafty cold closet or a stuffy attic. Keep your jewelry out of direct sunlight and at room temperature. To help avoid premature tarnishing and discoloration, choose a spot with consistent low humidity.
Different kinds of jewelry are more vulnerable to temperature and humidity damage than others. To avoid cracking and crazing, opals and cameos need more moisture in the air. Make sure to find a place where your jewellery set is safe from extreme temperature and humidity.
Store Jewellery With Acrylic Organizers
Clear trays and boxes are not only cost-effective, but they also look Instagrammable in seconds. Sort your jewelry by color or style and show it on top of a vanity or dresser, as seen in this beautifully arranged studio apartment, for an elegant display that doesn't necessitate any DIY skills or a big budget.
They are a perfect option if you are looking for storage where you can easily see your silver heart necklace or your heart stud earrings.
Ensure Jewelry Is Clean and Dry
Make sure all jewelry is clean and dry before storing it. Moisture can accelerate the tarnish or degradation of metals. For example, if you wore a silver necklace and got wet from the rain, be sure to dry it before keeping it in your storage.
For jewelry that will be stored for more than a week, make sure to remove tarnish. Premature and excessive tarnishing can occur when dirty jewelry is stored for an extended period of time (regardless of the type of jewelry). Furthermore, storing tarnished jewelry alongside untarnished jewelry will cause both pieces to tarnish more quickly.
Choose an Organizer With a Soft Lining
Several hard plastics and wooden jewelry organizers are available, but fine jewelry should be stored in something with a soft fabric lining. A soft fabric lining keeps your jewelry secure without breaking or damaging them. You won't risk losing your gemstones or metal if you drop your jewelry in quickly at the end of the day.
Make sure the jewelry box you select has enough compartments to keep all of your pieces apart. Sorting through clumps of jewelry is a nightmare.
Hang Them In Trendy Hanger
Since costume jewelry is usually safe to have out in the open, you can show it on a trendy hanger. If you wear costume jewelry or have a lot of larger accessories to arrange, go for a comprehensive hanger, which shows off your best pieces while still looking undeniably fashionable. Some experts advise that you keep your jewelry out in the open, so you don't forget what you have and are more likely to wear it all.
Having them arranged in this manner will ensure that your pieces will not clump together. When you're getting ready for work in the morning, it's doubtful that you'll want to search into your jewelry box. You can easily choose the jewelry hanging in the hanger and easily just put them back on.
Place The Jewelry In Tabletop Storage
In this space-saving stand, even your heart stud earrings have a place. Along with your studs and hoops, you'll be able to hang everything from necklaces to bracelets and not have to worry about taking up too much valuable space on your dresser top.
Store Fine Jewelry in a Safe Location
It can be difficult to store your jewelry in a way that prevents both harm and theft. On the one hand, you want to keep your jewelry in a warm, dry, and organized place, but you also want it locked in a safe.
Choose your most prized possessions and store them in velvet-lined drawers in a safe, out-of-the-way spot. Make sure all of your expensive jewelry is covered by jewelry insurance.
