Take a second to think about the valuable and sentimental pieces of jewelry you have in your collection. Are they being stored properly? The way you store your jewelry is really important when it comes to keeping it looking like-new for years to come. Keeping your jewelry organized will also minimize the risk of damage/loss of your precious pieces.
Jewelry boxes are the old favorite for storing jewelry but not all jewelry fits well in it and not everyone wants a traditional jewelry box. If your collection has outgrown your box, you might be left wondering what to do with it all. Whatever you prefer, it is important that each jewelry piece has its own separate space and isn’t piled and mixed with other pieces. Jewelry can easily become tangled together and hard gemstones can scratch and damage other jewelry. If you are looking for a more modern way to store jewelry, check out these 2 alternatives.
This first option is a great way to display your jewelry so you can easily see it all but still keep it hidden away and safe from the elements. Every time you open the drawer it’s like your own personal jewelry store. Everything is neatly displayed and easily accessible. You can find similar ring displays, earring stands, and bracelet displays on Amazon.
This second option is stacking jewelry containers with separate compartments. You can find ones with compartments that fit necklaces, earrings, rings, etc. These can easily be stored away in a drawer or put in a safe to protect your most valuable pieces. You can find similar ones here and here.
If your jewelry came with a pouch when you purchased it, it is best to keep it in the pouch when you aren’t wearing it. They generally have been designed to protect that particular piece. Some even contain anti-tarnish properties to help keep your jewelry looking brand new.
No matter how you decide to organize your jewelry, just remember to separate them and store them in a clean and dry place. If you have other jewelry organization ideas, we’d love to hear them. You can share them in the comments below.
