Where and how to store your jewelry?

With proper jewelry storage, you can increase the life of your jewelry. If jewelry is thrown into a jewelry box or drawer, the likelihood that it will be scratched, bent, damaged or lost increases significantly. Try some tips for organizing your jewelry collection.

There are many ways to store jewelry, but did you know that some of them are harmful? The best way to store jewelry depends on a few factors such as the materials used, the type of jewelry, and the value of the jewelry.


In some cases, how you store jewelry is a personal choice. Do you prefer to see your jewelry on display or have it hidden from view? Do you take off your jewelry in your bathroom or bedroom? Whatever your preferences, there are a few tips to consider to protect your jewelry.


When in doubt, keep your jewelry clean and dry. If you want more advice, follow these steps to ensure you don't inadvertently damage your jewelry or damage it prematurely.


* Sort by type. If you first sort by rings, necklaces, bracelets , earrings , etc., you can find where your matching earring sets are, what rings you own, and what you wear most often.
* Necklaces. It is important to store necklaces upright or flat. First, unclip the necklace to make sure the chain is free of kinks and twists. Then close and hang in an organized manner.

Separate jewelry by metal.


First, take an inventory of your jewelry. Make a few piles that separate fine jewelry, costume jewelry, and silver jewelry. You should keep costume jewelry away from silver and fine jewelry, and you should keep silver jewelry away from fine jewelry. This separation helps prevent the metals from tarnishing when they interact with each other.
Make sure jewelry is clean and dry.

Before storing your jewelry, make sure it is clean and dry. Moisture can tarnish or degrade metal much more quickly. For example, if you wear a silver necklace in the pouring rain, make sure to dry it before putting it back on.
We recommend removing tarnish from jewelry that will be stored for more than a week. Storing dirty jewelry for an extended period of time (regardless of the type of jewelry) can cause problems with premature and excessive tarnishing. Additionally, storing tarnished jewelry with non-tarnished jewelry can hasten the tarnishing of both pieces.
Most jewelry can be cleaned using the following method:

Mix a few drops of mild dish detergent and warm water.
Briefly dip the jewelry in the solution.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove dirt.
Dry the jewelry with a lint-free cloth.
Remove tarnish with a silver polishing cloth.

Lower humidity levels and maintain a constant temperature.



High humidity is the main culprit that accelerates the jewelry tarnishing process. If you live in a humid climate, you may notice that your jewelry tarnishes more quickly during the summer months. Consider running an air conditioner or dehumidifier in the room where your jewelry is stored. You can also purchase silica packets for your jewelry box to absorb excess moisture.
Next, find a place in your home with a consistent temperature. For example, don't place your jewelry holder right above an air vent. The more constant the temperature, the better. Consider keeping jewelry boxes in a consistently dark, cool indoor closet. You can also hang a jewelry holder on the inside of a closet door.

Store delicate jewelry in a dark, dry place.


Silver jewelry wears best when stored in a felt-lined jewelry box. Felt helps absorb excess moisture and prevent premature fading. For some large parts, it may be best to store them separately in a felt pouch or wrapped in a silver polishing cloth to limit exposure to air. In this case, you will have to remember what you have and make a conscious choice to wear it. Even with proper storage, silver jewelry will require regular polishing at least twice a year to remove tarnish. Do not overpolish silver jewelry, as this can also damage it.
Fine jewelry should be kept in a secure location so that it is less likely to be broken into. It is also essential to store fine jewelry out of direct sunlight, as some stones can be damaged by prolonged exposure to UV rays. Not all fine jewelry needs storage. Have a place on your dresser or nightstand where you can store the jewelry you wear every day, like your engagement ring or diamond studs. Get into the habit of always storing your jewelry in the same place to prevent it from getting lost.

Fine Jewelry Storage Tips:


Store fine jewelry so that the pieces do not touch each other. Diamonds are capable of scratching other stones and metals.
Store the beads in a felt-lined wooden box. Never store beads in a plastic bag or box as the plastic can interact with the beads and damage them.
Store fine jewelry in a safe or other discreet location.
If you want to store costume jewelry for longer, apply the same rules as for fine jewelry. If possible, keep these jewelry items from touching the inside of the jewelry box and be sure to maintain low humidity and a consistent temperature.

Costume Jewelry Storage Ideas:



Prevent necklaces from tangling by using twist ties.
Make a jewelry holder from an old picture frame.
Use an old metal rake to store the necklaces.
Organize earrings in egg cartons.

In summary:


Keep jewelry dry. Moisture is the main factor that accelerates the tarnishing process.
Store different types of jewelry separately. Make sure the jewelry does not touch each other inside the jewelry box.
Reduce the relative humidity of a room if you keep your jewelry out in the open and notice it tarnishing quickly.
