Because jewelry very often has a symbolic meaning, it is important to take care of it, to maintain it but also to store it in a box specially designed for the occasion. In your bedroom, living room or any other room in your home, discover practical tips for how to store your jewelry.
Organize your jewelry to better choose the type of storage
Necklaces, rings, bracelets or earrings, each jewel is different in size and symbolism. However, they all require special attention and careful storage. Therefore, jewelry boxes with a velvet interior are essential for storing or transporting jewelry with delicacy and refinement.
There are different styles of storage to organize your jewelry. In wood or leather, there is something for all tastes and styles. It is important to store your jewelry, especially if you tend to misplace your pieces easily. They must therefore be stored to avoid misplacing them but also, so as not to deteriorate them. For this, you must pay particular attention to the storage of your accessories. Indeed, bracelets and necklaces tend to get tangled quickly and therefore deteriorate. The rings must also avoid clashing because the precious stones being set on them could alter their beauty. Jewelery storage also ensures their safety. Indeed, pieces of too much value are at least hidden in this storage avoiding putting these jewels too obviously.
Thus, it is important to store your jewelry properly, first of all to take care of it and ensure its durability, but also to secure it in any room of your home. The different styles of storage also allow you to decorate your room or your home with great delicacy.
How to store your rings?
Ring storage is an extremely important detail that is all too often overlooked. Indeed, it is necessary to maintain the rings by cleaning them with water, soap or suitable products to ensure their durability. The precious stones set on the rings must also be carefully cleaned so that they have their shine like that of the first day. Please pay special attention when maintaining your ring. Indeed, do not use abrasive chemicals on your entire ring because the setting could be damaged (even if your diamond is resistant to everything). Therefore, soapy water is the best way to maintain your ring at home.
For the storage of these jewels, we advise you to store the rings in a box with compartments provided for the occasion. More practical, the rings should not be found alongside other rings because they could undergo friction which would alter the quality of the precious stones but also of the gold. If you don't want to store your jewelry in a specially designed box, you can display your jewelry on a jewelry tree or hand that would give you a glimpse of your collection.
Where and how should the necklaces be stored?
It is important to take special care with necklaces because the chain, especially when it is thin, can get tangled and therefore contribute to the deterioration of your jewellery. Therefore, it is important to untangle the necklaces and not store them together so that they do not get tangled. If one of your necklace has knots, don't wait and try to untangle it with tweezers or go directly to your jeweler to have it done for you without risking altering the quality of your jewel. .
To store your necklaces, it is therefore best to use suitable accessories by hanging them nicely or putting them in a jewelry box.
How to store earrings?
Earrings also require careful storage. Being in pairs, they must absolutely be grouped together before being stored so as not to lose them and make storage more practical. First of all, it is important to clean and disinfect the earrings before storing them in their storage box in order to disinfect them with a product recommended for this purpose. Indeed, alcohol is to be avoided in order to avoid harming the quality of the gold or the precious stones.
To store your earrings, you can keep your original case but you can also opt for a box with compartments. But you can also turn to an earring display that will also allow you to highlight your jewelry, a way to redecorate your interior.
How to properly store the bracelets?
As with necklaces, whether the chain is thin or thick, bracelets can sometimes get tangled and create knots that can harm the jewel. Meticulous care must therefore be taken when storing bracelets to avoid knots not only of your favorite bracelet but also of other bracelets in your collection. Very often, bracelet trees are favored because they allow you to decorate your interior in a refined and elegant way. However, you can also opt for a jewelry box that will allow you to store your bracelets in a more sober and elegant way, but also without affecting their quality.
Where and how to keep precious jewellery?
If you want to store your jewelry without altering its quality, you can also store your jewelry in the same box, or even the same compartment, but by putting them in a small transparent bag, and taking care not to tangle the chains of the necklaces and wristbands. Precious jewelry needs special attention. Indeed, not only do they have to be stored in storage designed for this purpose, but they must also be regularly cleaned and maintained to ensure their longevity and condition.
Jewelery boxes, pouches and display-type storage are devices that protect your jewelery from time. Indeed, they are not affected by scratches caused by friction between jewelry, dust and light. To preserve your jewelry, you must carry out regular maintenance at home or at a professional in order to preserve your alloy but also your precious stones.
Several tips should be taken into account to preserve your precious jewellery. First of all, it is essential to protect your jewelry from scratches but also from theft by putting it in a jewelry box. It is necessary to draw your attention to the tightness of your storage. Indeed, white gold jewelry, for example, can lose its rhodium plating and thus its color. To prevent this from happening, you should put them in a place that is not afraid of humidity, which could alter the color of the gemstones. Also, choose jewelry boxes with velvet rather than cotton. Indeed, cotton is an ideal element to polish your jewels but does not contribute to the conservation of the latter given the discolorations that it can cause. Thus, your precious jewelry will be more to put in a velvet jewelry box.
To avoid scratches on your metal but also on your precious stones, avoid overlapping them or rubbing them on other jewellery. Therefore, opt instead for a jewelry box with enough compartments to avoid storing them on top of each other. The best solution is to always ensure that a few centimeters of space are present between the jewels. Never forget that it is essential to clean your jewelry before storing it in its box or case.
Also, be sure to store your jewelry by gender. In other words, store necklaces with necklaces, rings with rings, bracelets with bracelets and earrings in pairs.
The jewels are therefore to be kept alone, in their original case or in a jewelry box (preferably velvet), and in a place that you will remember and for which you will become accustomed to storing them.
How to store gold jewelry?
Gold is a metal that can easily be damaged by other jewelry or gemstones. To avoid scratches, it is necessary to take special care of this metal. Therefore, for gold jewelry, it is preferable and advisable to store them separately, in a jewelry box or in small fabric bags. Humidity should be avoided so as not to deteriorate the alloy, especially in the case of white gold. Thus, you are advised to avoid storing them in your bathroom and to favor your bedroom or another room with no possible humidity.
To ensure perfect maintenance of your gold jewellery, remember to clean them well before storing them, especially earrings which require careful disinfection. To maintain your gold jewelry, you can clean it with soapy water or with a solution designed for this purpose. You can also use lemon. On the other hand, avoid using chemicals, especially if your jewel is set with precious stones that require meticulous care.

A diamond is an extremely robust and solid stone. Therefore, this gemstone can scratch other stones and alloys.

You should also store your diamond jewelry in a box that is not likely to promote the deterioration of the stone such as a velvet box or a velvet pouch. Either way, be careful never to clash two diamonds together!
