Storing Your Jewelry
STORING YOUR JEWELRY
A jewelry box is an ideal way to store your jewelry. Whether your treasured collection is large with a variety of pieces or small with a select few, take a moment to care for those pieces and keep them shiny and new. When selecting a method to store the jewelry think of your collection and ask yourself these questions.
1. What jewelry pieces and accessories do I collect the most?
- Necklaces - long or average length
2. Do I have a place to store my jewelry?
- Dresser drawer
- Dresser top
- Closet space
Ask these questions so you can think through your requirements such as hooks for necklaces slots for rings drawers for broaches and watches. During my recent storage purchase, I had to consider the length of my necklace chains. Longer chains require more extended storage box. I went with a full-length wall unit, and it perfectly matched my needs.
When you think about spaces available you have the option of a variety of storage methods, for instance, there are jewelry boxes which mount on walls. These storage options can serve dual purposes such as a full-length mirror or a photo frame.
Storing your jewelry helps to preserve that new jewelry look.
Jewelry trees are for pieces you wear weekly and clean regularly. Having your jewelry out on display makes it easy to find what you are looking for to start your day. Keep in mind no matter how you chose to store your jewelry always keep them where the humidity and heat are controlled.
Jewelry trays come in a variety of sizes and materials. Finding a tray with a soft velvet lining will help prevent surface scratching. Trays work best for those bulky items. Store your broaches and watches in a tray for easy access and adequate storage space. If you happen to have enough space in your dresser, store your most delicate pieces such as pearls and intricate earrings.
