Unlock the Secrets to Perfect Jewellery Storage and Maintenance

The critical point in suitable jewellery storage and maintenance is ensuring that each piece has enough room and that the box is not overfilled. The image of an overflowing jewellery box might give an illusion that you have a lot of jewellery; however, over time, the precious metal will get scratched and lose its shine. Also, chains can get tangled with other pieces, which is damaging to them and frustrating. 


A proper storage box will also allow you to organise your jewellery correctly. Ideally, it would be best not to mix diamond jewellery with other gemstone jewellery, as diamond is the hardest mineral; therefore, it can scratch other gemstones. 

Also, it would help if you kept precious metals, like silver, gold, and platinum, separate from costume jewellery, usually made of non-precious metals. Most of the time, non-precious metals can oxidise and tarnish, speeding up the silver tarnish process.

More extensive and more expensive pieces are worth keeping in separate pouches, which will protect them from scratching and retain their lustre. 

Up keeping 

To ensure that your jewellery looks new, there are a few tips on storing it after wearing it. 

After wearing your jewellery, before putting it back in the storage box, wipe it clean with a special jewellery wipe. This way, you will remove all unnecessary dirt, oils, and moisturisers and minimise the tarnishing process. Also, that will ensure your jewellery is ready to wear next time. 

Also, inspect your jewellery before and after wearing it. If you have noticed any damage or any other wear and tear, most jewellers can fix it. 

Jewellery is an investment that requires proper care and storage to ensure that it retains its value and beauty for many years. Storing jewellery properly helps protect it from damage, such as scratches, tarnishing, and breakage. The following tips will help you store and organise your jewellery to keep it looking its best for a long time.

Suitable Storage Options

Jewellery boxes are the most common storage option for many people. A jewellery box is a container designed to store different types of jewellery, such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. Jewellery boxes come in different sizes, shapes, and designs, so you can choose one that suits your style and needs.

Another popular storage option is a jewellery armoire. A jewellery armoire is a free-standing piece of furniture with multiple drawers and compartments for storing different types of jewellery. Some jewellery armoires come with a lock and key, which provides added security for your valuables.

If you have an extensive jewellery collection, you may want to consider a wall-mounted jewellery organiser. A wall-mounted organiser is a space-saving option that allows you to store and display your jewellery decoratively and functionally.
