Importance of Properly Storing Jewelry

Jewelry Storage TipsFor many people, jewelry is a precious keepsake for many reasons. Jewelry does hold monetary value, but more importantly, it often represents specific memories and relationships.

If you want to make sure that your jewelry lasts, you need to make sure that you are storing it safely and properly.

Carriage House Furnishings has a few tips on how to properly store your jewelry, so the memories and the sparkles will last a lifetime.

It is important to keep your jewelry in a place that is clean and dry, such as a jewelry box that’s lined with fabric. If your jewelry came with a pouch when you first purchased it, it’s important to continue to store the piece of jewelry in that pouch. Jewelers often will sell jewelry with a pouch made from a specific type of fabric, designed specifically to keep the piece safe from tarnish.

Gold is malleable and can be damaged and scratched from other gemstones metals. To keep your gold jewelry safe, store it separately from your silver or platinum pieces, and keep them in the bags that they were likely purchased with.

Silver should be stored in tarnish-proof cases, away from air exposure. Extended exposure to air and moisture can cause even well-made silver pieces to tarnish.

To prevent the loss or misplacement of your pieces, it’s important to keep to a routine, and store them in the same place on a daily basis. Jewelry boxes make storing your jewelry easy: not only does the box protect the pieces from tarnish, but it’ll keep them safe in your home, if you always put your pieces back in the same place, you’ll always know where they are the next day.
