Storing Your Jewelry
A jewelry box is the classic 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 you jewelry think of your collection and ask yourself these questions.
1. What pieces of jewelry and accessories do I collect the most of?
c. Necklaces â€“ long or average length d. Bracelets
2. Where do I have room for storage?
b. Dresser drawer
c. Dresser top surface
d. 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 a longer storage box. I went with a full length wall unit this has worked perfect for 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.
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 you jewelry always store it 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.
