Getting proper jewelry storage is essential not only for preserving the quality and value of your jewelry pieces but also in making them conveniently accessible for your use. It is also important for securing your jewelry collection from prying eyes and hands. An ideal jewelry storage solution would be one that protects every piece from dust, direct sunlight, moisture, impacts and scratches. It must be something that can accommodate small jewelry boxes like those intended for pairs of earrings and cuff links. It must be something that is not just a storage box but also an item that can complement the existing décor of your room. A stylish and secure standing jewelry armoire can offer function, convenience and security for storing your jewelry pieces.
Silver and gold jewelry pieces need to be stored in a special cloth, which is intended to absorb moisture and prevent oxidation. This should prevent the jewelry from tarnishing. For age-old heirlooms, more intricate storage may be required such as air-tight padded containers.
More importantly, when storing jewelry pieces, you first need to group them accordingly. For instance, group together all pieces with pearls, gemstones, diamonds or gold. Each material has specific care requirements that must be met. For instance, precious gems need to be stored with a slightly dampened cotton ball to preserve their luster and prevent them from drying out. Pearls need to be lightly rubbed with mineral oil before storing to increase their sheen and preserve their beauty.
Organize your jewelry collection into groups of necklaces, bracelets, rings or earrings. Necklaces are arguably the most challenging to store. Often, you find jewelry boxes with knotted chains of necklaces. To prevent necklaces from tangling, they are best stored hanging on a hook. As a rule of thumb, pendants are best stored separate from the necklace. Hanging your necklaces with its pendant on may only stretch the chain out of shape. Provide separate jewelry storage or a box for your pendants. With rings, these pieces are best stored with their decorated portion facing upward. This is also a practical tip since making your ring’s designs visible allows you to conveniently keep track of your growing ring collection and easily pick out which one to complement your outfit best. There are special ring holders that can be used such as miniature velvet padded hands and velvet rods that look like a long cat’s tail.
